Rare White Falcon Sighting!
March 1, 2015

Ladies and gentlemen, I just want to share this magnificent photo of a rare white falcon I sighted on a recent canoe trip on the Brazos River, while it was perched in a tree overhanging the river.  I'm usually lousy at bird photos, but this was one of those magic moments where I managed to get close enough, and the majestic old bird sat still long enough, that I captured it at just he right moment for a fantastic photo.  Needless to say, a white falcon is a rare sighting!  Enjoy!
