    Comments: Soaring over the yard. I've been sitting there watching and hoping for one of these here for the past 12 Springs. Saw a partial bird soaring behind the trees and immediately recognized a 'kite' wing and, on the next turn, the ID was obvious (although I was secretly hoping for Swallow-tailed). Slender-winged gray raptor with white head and long wedge-shaped tail. Originally thought it was an adult male but the grayish tail with subtle barring I guess suggests a second year bird (?). Drifted North towards Cedar Point. Rushed into the house to find a camera (should have stayed and watched it) and fired off a volley of out-of-focus shots just before it vanished behind the tree line.
