Mississippi Kite - Camp Verde

A MIKI was mistaken for a WTKI in the Quarterhorse Lane section of Camp Verde (south of White Bridge) on Sunday 25MAR by Marshall Whitmire.

What's the history of prior WTKI records for Yavapai? This species is on my shortlist of overdue birds for Coconino.

1. after further checking with marshall whitmire it turns out it was NOT a white-tailed kite, but rather a super early MISSISSIPPI KITE. apparently mississippi kites have been in camp verde for at least 7 years but never got reported until last couple years.
2. in last 7 years that i know of there was 1 white-tailed kite that was seen in dewey that moved to prescott willow lake (was seen most of a winter).
3. then there was a sighting (2 birds as i recall) in rim rock by dena greenwood late sept followed by a sighting in camp verde early oct.
4. that is it in yavapai for last 7 years as far as i know.

Mississippi Kite have been breeding at least intermittently in L. Montezuma and Camp Verde since 2002 and perhaps earlier. They are present in very low numbers, perhaps as few as a single pair, breeding on private property.

I have an old WTKI record from Camp Verde 28 APR 1980 (Gerald Burnett), and also near Bridgeport 15 FEB 1995 (V Gilmore).
