Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1422)
Canada (Ontario) 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.

You know if you didn’t manage such a good look, from a long distance it could be mistaken for other species! Incredible.

I spent the time imagining it as a white morph Gyrfalcon.
