Pearl Kite NE of Sebaco

While driving from Managua to Jinotega on Saturday, November 26, Georges Duriaux came across a Pearl Kite (Gampsonyx swainsonii) perched on a roadside power line, a few hundred meters beyond the exit for Chaguítillo, 4 km northeast of Sébaco on the main highway to Matagalpa. While Pearl Kite is being recorded more and more frequently in Nicaragua's Pacific slope lowlands, this sighting is unusually far north and east, and is one of the very few records of this species in Nicaragua's northern mountains.
