I Saw the Red Kites! (Rare birds of prey)

I saw the Red Kites 
flying high in the sky; 
What a beautiful site to behold:
As they hovered above 
with the sun shining through, 
revealing their red, brown and gold. 

History tells 
about a century ago, 
these birds were almost extinct. 
I swear I saw one 
as it came sweeping down, 
give me a mischievous wink. 

"We're back (was the message) 
and we're here to stay, 
sit back and enjoy the view." 
Then all of a sudden 
they burst out in song, 
like a choir right on cue.
