Linda Sheppard saw this hawk in her yard near Oak Bay village last week and thinks it just might be a rare sighting of a White Tailed Kite. There is a record of a kite being photographed last year so if any birders can confirm this species, Oak Bay News and Linda Sheppard would love to hear from you. (Linda Sheppard photo)
