I was in the area today (before reading this message) on Michigan Hollow road, and at one point heard a sequence of three broad-wing squeals. They fit in nicely between several blue jay vocalizations, from roughly the same direction, so without visual confirmation, and given the early (?) date, I was chalking it up as a blue jay. But perhaps it came from this "arctic kite" :-).
