On August 16, 2014, three juvenile Mississippi Kites were released at the Apalachee Regional Park near Tallahassee, Florida after being rehabilitated at Audubon’s Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland, Florida. They were brought to Tallahassee because many Mississippi Kites are staging in the area for their fall migration.
The releasers were Adrienne Ruhl, President of the Apalachee Audubon Society, George Wilson, Audubon Florida board member, and Karen Berkley, an Audubon volunteer. Dianna Flynt, from the Bird of Prey Center, transported the birds from Maitland and coordinated the release.
Note: Beginning with our September 25th meeting, program meetings will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 2810 North Meridian Road. See the Programs page for a map of the new location.
