November’s Lunch & Learn featured Rafael Galves from the Florida Keys Hawkwatch. Few sites in North America regularly document the passage of migratory Swallow-tailed Kites. Their southeastern distributions, combined with their fall departure as early as July create a challenge for any raptor count. The Florida Keys Hawkwatch conducted its first ever “Kite Flight” initiative during the 2021 season, adding six weeks to the traditional count period.
