Watch for Raptors On Days Like This...

...They Like To Fly In From The South.  The rarest bird yesterday was a White-tailed Kite that made a brief appearance at the lighthouse during my sharkwatch.  Believe it or not, this kite was rarer than the Tennessee Warbler or the Black-throated Blue Warbler also seen on the Island yesterday.  Today is my last full day here on Southeast Farallon Island for the year 2011.  I have mixed feelings.  Both stoked and bummed to be moving on to the next adventure.  I don't know where TPAD is headed, but I will try to keep up on it for as long as I can.  

The super rare White-tailed Kite, coming in from the South.

I eventually caught the female Black-throated Blue Warbler.  This is the same bird that I posted a few days ago
