Kites are raptors.  Doesn't mean they don't ever get entangled, as this one did.  Good on him who cut the bird loose!

I'm always having to disentangle birds from the trees in my yards. usually it's owls and hawks, but I've had pretty much everything up there. I wouldn't be surprised to see an ostrich one day. I really need to trim the thing back, the cover is great for camouflage and the birds flock to it. I encourage it because it keeps the pigeons down.

Not its fault. Birds haven't had much time to evolve the ability to deal with litter.

I hate how the mainstream media like Fox, CNN and MSNBC don't cover important stories like this one.

At least it wasn't rescued humorously.

I'm not sure which knight it was, but there was an Arthurian story about a knight who took off his armor and climbed a tree to untangle a hawk for a lady. Her husband showed up and long story short waited to beat the crap out of the knight in the tree. The knight in the tree broke off a branch and beat crap out the husband.

It is this sort of thing that makes me laugh at people who talk about books being "dead trees" and who believe everything is on the internet. Everything is not on the internet. Only stuff that people who like the internet is on the internet.

That is a horrible sentence. I hope you embrace it and learn it. Your children and your children's children should learn it.

I didn't have a bird stuck in a tree, but I came home one day to find a quail hanging upside down from our wooden fence. Best I can figure, it had been walking across the top and got one of its feet trapped between the boards. When it tried to free itself, all Hell broke loose. By the time I got home, one leg was missing at the knee(Is it a knee on a bird?), and the other had a broken foot. I successfully got the bird disentangled(Covered him in a towel, and pushed on one of the boards to create enough space), and spent 20 minutes playing musical phone numbers on who takes in injured birds. Finally, I found out that the local place was actually my current vet. Turned around, and in the last 30 seconds of the final call, that stupid bird flew off. I wonder how he enjoyed his first landing?

Mikey1969: I didn't have a bird stuck in


I have you favorited as a condescending cracker ass. I may have made a mistake but you did something at sometime that made me classify you that way. Now I've got you on condescending cracker ass watch. Consider yourself informed.

Well, glad to know that my captive bird isn't the only one that gets stuck in the tree.

Opus: Haaaalp! Somebody took my ladder.
Bring a ladder and an anchovy and squid pizza.
I'm literally starving up here!


When I was a student in Europe I saw a sea food pizza. It was literally a pizza with squid. Apart from the Neopolitan original, the Europeans make some lousy pizzas. My roomie on another trip to Europe ordered a caper pizza. That's what he got. A pizza with about half a bottle of capers on it. NOTHING but capers.

With the exception of some Italians, Americans make the best pizza and forget about arguing whether it is Chicago-style or New York style. That is a question of appetite. If you are a fat pig you need a Chicago-style pizza and if you are svelte and willing to pay more per square inch  than you paid for your closet-sized apartment, then you want a New York thin-crust pizza.

I used to make pizzas from scratch with a lovely thick crust, but I prefer something lighter. I can only eat a maximum of two slices of ordinary pizza.

But I digress. Kite-eating trees don't eat pizzas. Neither do pandas, as the whingers who complained about Fran Leibowitz's children's book pointed out pedantically. I love Fran Leibowitz but the lazy b***** doesn't write any more books it seems.

I'm in complete agreement with you about this.
These are animals that are descended from some of the largest and most formidable animals this world has produced.  But once us mammals got large enough to cause problems, we forged through with reckless abandon.

That was an impressive rant.
