The Avian Conservation Center/Center for Birds of Prey needs your help reporting sightings of Swallow-tailed Kites.
Your sightings will help determine the birds' distribution, monitor population trends, and locate important nesting and foraging sites.
Swallow-tailed Kites have striking black and white plumage with a long, scissor-like, forked tail. They are primarily located in bottomland forests and open habitat.
If you see one, all you need to do is report when and where you saw the bird, as well as any other observation details.
