I went out today and saw a Red-tailed Hawk fighting with a bird I didn't recognize. It was all white, yellow beak, darkish legs, and strange looking eyes I couldn't begin to describe. Posting two but have many more. They are not the best of images but the uniqueness of this bird made me want to share them here. Thanks for looking.

Looks to be an albino Red-tailed Hawk. Very cool.

Hey Porkphoto, would you mind if I shared your pictures on FB in the bird of prey groups and of course give you the credit?

Don't mind at all. I receive a lot from this forum and I would like to give some back. Thanks for the compliments and ID.
