Thank you for joining us for the 2017 Swallow-tailed Kite population survey! It's easy, just fill in the form below. As a reminder, this form is only for sightings on 19 July, 22 July, 25 July and 28 July and only for sightings in Florida.
The most valuable Swallow-tailed Kite sightings will be those in the mornings from sunrise to 10:00 a.m. The birds you report may be perched or flying, but please specify. We encourage you to boat or kayak down a river, get out on your favorite lake or trail through a swamp forest (kites often roost near water), or just report kites as you see them anywhere, including from your own backyard. Above all, a bird's well-being comes first; if a bird appears agitated or takes flight, you are too close.
