Imagine seeing one of these flying wild just over your head.
The wingspan was probably about 4 feet. 2 days ago it flew over our house and dipped into the front yard then chose to sit in the cedar tree across the road. A bit later it repeated the flight in reverse. An awesome sight.
It's a red-tailed hawk, very common here in Texas and one species that is prone to albinism. Our visitor was blindingly white and just magnificent. I hope he visits again.
