Confirmation that 'my' Kite was, indeed a Black has to be one of my all time birding highlights. Not an 'I told you so' moment, because I didn't in that way, more a correct i/d of a bird never seen by me before, and it being on West Hartford.
Through railings, and from distance, a poor record shot:
Missing the Purple Heron was a pisser - it would have been a shitter (that's one level more on the twatometer!) if it had been a Lifer. C'est la vie!
What a crackin' end to the day - local as usual, with Crammy, and a LEO. One of my all time favourite birds, and even more special as that's 115 for the year and one more to move ahead of the last two years' annual total.
