Unusual Redtail Hawk

A friend told me about this Redtail Hawk he saw just over the hill from where I live. I took a look the other week and found a light colored one right where he said but he said no this one looks like a seagull. Well since the sun was out yesterday I took another look and there it was as white as could be. Got really really lucky to have it take off and do a few circles overhead. Very cool site to see. Also had a regular variety Redtail fly by as well.

The white one is leucistic. I worked with one at a nature center that had leucism that was found in Bradford county. Beautiful bird.
