[Tweeters] Toledo, not Tenino

To reiterate Wayne Weber’s comment, there is, alas, no airport in Tenino. At least I haven’t seen it in my 16 years near Tenino. It’s that other southwest Washington town that starts with T and ends in O: try Toledo, another 40 miles south. If you are down there today, you might also check out the Morgan Arts Center and the Spring Equinox art sale.

Good birding, Bob

Thanks to previous finders' eBird reports, I got to the specific area easily. I turned on Buckley Road from Jackson Highway and checked the hedgerow on the south side of the runway, per earlier reports. No dice. I then drove south on Buckley, to where county maintenance on the road ended, checking trees and watching for flying raptors. Again, no luck. Turned back to Spencer, and headed east on Spencer, then left on Schoolhouse Lane, left on Tucker, left on Jackson Highway and back to Buckley. It was fortunate I decided to check Buckley again. This time, I opted to check the fields on the west side of Buckley, and - serendipitously - I saw a mostly-white bird that dropped low enough to show up against a fairly distant tree line. Buckley doesn't have much traffic, so I stopped, grabbed the binocs and confirmed the identity.

And also typical kite behavior - hover hunting frequently, in addition to some flying/soaring.
