2) Or report your observations directly to Dr. Jennifer Coulson by email: jacoulson@aol.com or text: (504) 717-3544 or call and leave a voice message.
What to report: Observer's name and contact information, date, time, location of sighting(please be as specific as possible), number of kites observed, behaviors (e.g., flying (please provide the direction the kite was heading), feeding/hunting insects, nest building, carrying food, feeding young, number of young, etc.).
