[10] Another pair was observed breeding in Ohio in 2007. [11] As well, the territory has expanded westwards due to shelterbelts being planted in grassland habitats.

[9] They have one clutch a year, which takes 30 to 32 days to hatch. The young birds leave the nest another 30 to 34 days after hatching. Only about half of broods succeed. Clutches fall victim to storms and predators such as raccoons and great horned owls. Because there are fewer predators in urban areas, Mississippi kites produce more offspring in urban areas than rural. They have an average lifespan of 8 years.
