This past week I saw a pure white hawk!! I saw it on the road, eating roadkill. I pulled my car over real quick and pulled out my cell phone and snapped a few pictures before it took off. They're not the best pictures, but Iwas lucky to catch what I could.
Last December we saw this pure white bird in the distance on a tree branch - we couldn't make out if it was a white hawk or owl. It seemed so white, like it was glowing. But now I know what it is.
As I drove away I was able to see the bird at a closer range, and I saw it was a hawk. Pure white, no color whatsoever. Black eyes. Now that I know it's out there I will be looking more. I assume it's an albino hawk, I never heard of any type of white hawk in this area, nor do my bird books. It looked like a red-tailed hawk, which is common here, only it was white. I don't think albino hawks are too common here in Maryland, either.
