TULSA, Oklahoma -

Whether it's the heat, the drought or perhaps both, a local bird rehab group is being overwhelmed with young Mississippi Kites, jumping from their nests before they can fly.

The group could use volunteers and cash for food for the birds they're taking in. Click here to find out how you can help.
