Seen flying directly through the valley that is looked out on from the mostly treeless slopes of the Yellow-house trails before you get to the numbered trails (1 through 5) from the Mindo entrance. The bird Followed roughly the same flight path as the two HBKI that were seen from this same spot a couple minutes before it. Although the snail kite and the hook-billed kite were not ever observed simultaneously, the snail kite's profile was distinctly more elongated, with longer wings lacking the huge secondary bulges of HBKI. Color was visible on both kite species, with the HBKI being barred an orangey color below and having multiple white tail stripes on their wide fan shaped tails. The SNKI, by contrast, was all dark, with only one much wider tail band that wrapped all the way over the top of its narrower tail. Unfortunately, due to the birds brief appearance and disappearance, no photos or good view of the head were obtained.
