I was out in the pen yesterday, where we had the bird we found, couldn't see it in the shed where it was or anywhere else so was happily thinking that it was OK and had *flown the coop* Little happy dance.
I have been out there today cleaning the shed out and found the poor thing dead behind a crate.
It is now buried under a Peach tree.
Thanks to Wendy who informs me that it was a Black Shouldered Kite.
Eight of the best. (Edited)
