A White-tailed Kite has “wandered” into Connecticut and was first spotted by birdwatcher Dennis Varza on Aug. 1 at 8 a.m. from Short Beach while Dennis was looking in the direction of Stratford Point. Within an hour, Dennis had spread the news to much of the online CT birding community; soon after the first wave of visitors arrived (eventually totaling hundreds) from several states. And they’re still coming as of Aug. 2 ’cause the bird is still there! A group of birdwatchers at Stratford Point looking at the White-tailed Kite on Aug. 2.
