I saw this hawk soaring over Irvine CA yesterday. I am not a dedicated birder but spend a good deal of time outdoors hiking and love to see hawks. I do carry my bird book with me at all times. I know my hawks and this was a pure white one. And albino red tail makes perfect sense, we have many regular red tails around; in fact a nesting pair each year in the eucs next door. Any how, I was glad to have an explanation as I had not ever heard of a white phase red tail. Bill
These pictures of "Casper" are spectacular. You are a terrific photographer George. Now, which size do I want to hang in my livingroom. We love #10. I'll be ordering soon.
