2 Mississippi Kites - young (2nd calendar year) birds with stripped tails and 
mottled underwing coverts.  Seen from our deck on Black Oak Ridge in west Knox 
Co Friday night about 7:45 PM.  Casually circled over the house allowing me to 
run inside for camera and get a few distant shots showing relevant ID points 
including short outer primary.  Gradually worked NE along the ridge until out 
of sight.

My second Knox Co record with the first being a very similar sighting (minus 
the circling and photos) on 25 May 2014.

44 species from yard and neighborhood today.
