I've gotten some very good backchannel feedback on my ID help request, especially a YouTube video from Joe Schaufenbuel showing a soaring Mississippi Kite. I'm leaning very strongly toward that species as the correct ID, but since I have zero experience with it, I don't know that I have enough to work with for Rare Bird documentation (MS Kite is my #1 "nemesis" bird.) Given that they nest in Rockford, IL, a bird could easily work its way up the Rock River. Anyway, keep your eyes open - when I lost the bird, it was headed generally north/northeast towards Lake Mendota. Guess I should have checked Cherokee Marsh in case it decided to settle down somewhere for the evening (this was last Thursday - June 25.)
