Leucistic Hawk at Stony Creek Metropark

This morning I was driving my son to the Nature Center at Stony Creek Metropark when a 100% Leucistic Hawk flew over us being chased by crows. It was a Buteo, about the size of a Red-tailed Hawk. I dropped Andrew off and headed back to the spot. I was able to relocate the bird but I could not get a photograph… It was being chased by a mob of Crows… Great Bird.

I had Fox Sparrows at two locations today. Stony Creek near the Osprey Trail and at Wolcott Mills. I went to see if I could get a shot of the Townsend’s Solitaire in better light and it was in the same tree I had seen it the evening before. I managed one photo and it flew off toward the woods. I waited an hour and it did not return. There were a few other birders there hoping to see it… I hope it returns.
