Mississippi Kite?


Recommended Posts

I saw this bird yesterday near Corolla, NC (Outer Banks).  The bird was flying on a south-to-north beeline over Currituck Sound.  I'm thinking it is a Mississippi Kite, but this is a bit out of range for them.  

eBird shows only a few historical sightings for the Outer Banks in May so I thought I'd post to look for some confirmation.

The second picture shows a hint of banding on the tail, so maybe a juvenile?

Thanks in advance!

Both pictures are cropped and brightened (the bird was backlit).
