It won't be too long before nestling Mississippi Kites start to arrive at Wild Bird Rescue. Over the next few days, I'm going to share a bit of information about their arrival. Mississippi kite nestlings are downy and white, about the size of a golf ball, and weigh approximately one ounce. Like other birds of prey, they grow very quickly. Awwww...to think I once looked like that. Phee Phew!
