This particular bird came to our Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital as a nestling patient. After a brief stay, it was released back into the wild. However, two months later, a rescuer witnessed the kite fly into a building window, and brought it back to Lindsay. The neurological injury from the window impact, along with this bird’s unusually docile behavior around people, means it would not survive in the wild.
Celebrate our very first white-tailed kite through your adoption of Dragon!
