Mississippi Kite nest removal-2

This Mississippi Kite baby and nest were removed from a tree near the Youth Center at Vance AFB, Okla. The parent kites’ increasingly aggressive behavior toward passers-by made removal the only option for the CSC Civil Engineer Department Environmental coordinator at Vance. The baby kite will be raised by a local wildlife rehab expert and released at maturity. (U.S. Air Force photo by Joe B. Wiles)
