Had pleasure of sharing the pasture with this guy this morning. Sure he had more luck than me but what an awesome experience wish I would've have better camera, had to take pics through my binoculars.

Looks like a pet bird vs a hawk

Wish you could see the beak better. Kinda looks like a cockatoo. You would not believe the noise one of them can make.

Probably an albino red tail hawk. I was looking for a picture of a white hawk, since our shop is Whithawk Machine and Tool, and found lots of pictures of albino red tail hawks. Wish I had seen it in person, thanks for sharing!

I'll back you up on this one, I took pics of a Red Tail Albino several years ago in Hebbronville Tx. They do exist.

BTW I'm not trying to say it's not a hawk. I'm just saying by the picture and not seeing or hearing in person it looks like a cockatoo.

Cool thing to get to see.

I see you are from Lufkin, was this anywhere near nac by chance? I saw one on 21 east last year. Was a solid white red tailed hawk.
