Abstract

A review of hospital admissions for Mississippi Kites (Ictinia mississippiensis) 2014–20 found that most admissions were due to trauma, including ballistic trauma. Overall, 118/ 282 (42%) survived, including releases and transfers. This baseline data may enable earlier detection of epidemics and of human-animal conflict escalation in other kite populations.
