  1. That does sound like a phalarope description, particularly the head and neck pattern. 

    It is hard to know whether to chase something or not during migration. Could still be there, could be loooooong gone. I chased a pair of Glossy Ibis yesterday that HamRHead found here in our town on Tuesday, to no avail. 


  2. If it makes you feel better, the wings are too thin to be a kite. I still have yet to see a Peregrine, but I know long, thin, pointed wings are one of the field marks. 

    And, when kites are soaring, the back edge of their wings is extremely straight, or slightly concave, this bird has an ever so slight convex curve to it. It's slight, but it's there. I watched a kite today, so the image is still fresh in my head.
