On the way up to see a Red Sox game at Fenway Park, we took a detour to see CT’s only nesting Mississippi Kites. They are one of only two pairs nesting in New England, though, as proven on CTBirds there could be more out there! The moment I stepped out of the car, a Mississippi Kite flew over! It then turned and started soaring but I soon discovered the second bird sitting and preening on the kite’s favorite perch. We spent over 20 minutes watching them.
