I went to the park at Basehor earlier this week, a second time, after I had walked the
dogs. I got some great pictures... but... today, after some doctor's appointments,
I got some pictures I want to share with you.
I am going to put these pictures in the order they were taken,
but know that there were many, many more in between each picture.
I had not seen the leucistic hawk for several days and was starting to wonder.
From underneath, you can see there is very little color in his tail... I think it is light pink.
Double click on a couple of these to see him larger.
Some of these are a little grainy (like the above picture) because I had to crop them way down... it was a long way away from me. In this one you can see a little pink in the tail.
It got ready to come in for a landing.
Finally he landed, across the pasture.
He did not like me staying there.
And off he went again.
By contrast, this regular-colored red tail flew past me down the road about a mile.
And off into a pasture there.
"She likes that hawk better than us, Betty."
