The issue of the white-tailed kite nesting and the County staff's conclusion about the potential impacts is of real concern. Whether or not the kites are "married" to a particular nesting location is disputed by the experts. Much was made by the County and the applicant about the number of other trees onsite that the kites could use for nesting in the future. This completely ignores the significant fact that, with all the other trees - and hence, potential nesting sites - on the property, this pair chose the tree that they did, which would indicate that none of the other trees onsite represented as satisfactory a location. The location appears to have been so satisfactory, in fact, that an unprecedented number of young were fledged from that nest.

I'm so glad to see Jerry Roberts back with CapReport! I'm betting Joe Cole had something to do with that - but however it happened, write on!!!

Ray, a correction about the next steps in the process - this project is within the Coastal Commission's appeals jurisdiction, and as such can be appealed to the Commission within ten working days of the Commission receiving a Notice of Final Action from the County.
