July 6, 2010
Lila went to pick up one of my kind which was down in a yard. All its comrades were directly above standing vigil over their injured brother. Like the Marine motto to not leave one behind, these six Mississippi Kites did not leave their post above this bird. As Lila was driving back down Southwest Parkway to the Rescue Center with the injured bird, the sky opened up with 75-100 soaring Mississippi Kites circling above the treetops as if to say “Please take care of our injured friend.” Sadly the injured kite had a broken wing and had to be euthanized. It did not suffer and its life ended with dignity. Mankind could sure learn from Mississippi Kites. Phee Phew and Amen!
