Kingston - This is a leucistic bird with nearly pure white feathering. There is some pale beige on the underwing and under the tail but otherwise, to the untrained eye, this looks like either a white morph Gyrfalcon or a Snowy Owl. It is not a local bird, only moving into the area a few weeks ago.

St. Catharines - Getting close to an adult Red-tailed, even in a vehicle is rare so this opportunity was much appreciated.

Thanks to Lou for correcting me that this was a Red-tailed Hawk and not a Swainson's dark phase. City of Rocks Reserve, Idaho.

I'm not a hawk expert, I think this is a juvenile, more by behaviour than plumage.

What I believe to be an adult calurus version of the Red-tailed Hawk. It took me awhile to identify using the updated National Geographic, as the older versions don't have a good depiction. We also don't get this type out east. If wrong, please correct the id. Seen at Victoria Airport, Canada.

As part of the Christmas Bird Count 2015, we had a record number of raptors which was great news. This was one of 6 Red-tailed Hawks, along with 2 Rough-legged Hawks, 1 Red-shouldered Hawk and 1 Kestrel at Dorval. We think we under-counted the number of raptors but erred on the cautious side.
