Presenting the first-ever island-tagged Swallow-tailed Kite! Dr. Ken Meyer and Gina Kent of Avian Research and Conservation Institute tagged him on May 25th of this year on Sanibel and he is already been providing good data
about his travels. San-Cap Audubon helped sponsor this Kite in memory of past President Jim Griffith, who played
a large role in supporting ARCI. For more information on Swallow-tailed Kites and their migration click ARCI.
Below are two pictures that show Sanibel's flight to Grosso do Sul, Brazil and activity while there. We will follow his
return flight in February.
