Swallow-tailed kite

This swallow-tailed kite was found in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, injured and weak after being blown off course by winter storm “Vulcan.” However, thanks to a concerned citizen, the Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and the Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research, Inc. it survived. The raptor was released at Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge where there is an abundance of kites.
