Of course (every other bird around here is a song sparrow) ? Well, I did get a decent bird at the same spot today. Thanks for the ID.

My apologies to the membership for adding to a five-day-old post.

@MWM, the Center for Birds of Prey in Awendaw, SC, is a primary research agency for Swallow-tailed Kites.  Among other tasks, they track the distribution of STKI.  They'd appreciate it if you'd complete the linked form detailing your sighting.  The Rochester area is unusually far north for these birds.

Thanks!

You ever hunted in the car for your camera when you see a STKI?

"Oh, God; oh, God, where is it??  Is the bird still up there?  GAWD, I FOUND IT!"

Fixed.

This is me with just about any especially notable bird. ?

That's me with my binoculars and fiddling with the adjustment.

In the winter: Why can't I get this stupid glove off! 

In the summer: WHERE IS THAT LENS CLOTH?!?!? My camera is fogged up!

How come your camera fogs up in the summer? I've had my binoculars fog up on a cold morning, for some weird reason, which is pretty terrible because then you can't see all the faraway birds.

When you take a camera out from 70's degree air conditioning out into humid 95 you get a fogged up camera lens.
