White-tailed Kite nest location

A recent conversation among Oregon birders has focused on White-tailed Kites and the type of habitat they use in Western Oregon. A pair of Kites nested for several years in a patch of tall evergreen trees (mostly Sitka Spruce) about 1/4 mile from the Little Nestucca River in Tillamook Co. In 2001 the nest was about 80 or 100 ft. high in one of the tallest trees in the grove, shown here by the yellow circle. (Click on photo for enlarged view.)
