Bird of the Trip Thus Far

Saturday, October 18, 2008
We spotted a white hawk on a distant forest mountainside while birding in the El Valle region. I took this digiscoped image of it through the rain and mist. Quite a beautiful bird.

More soon, when time and access allows. Right now we're getting on a bus bound for Cerro Azul.

I didn't know they existed. I've heard of snowy owls, ... but not a snowish hawk. Who would have though they'd be so far from the snow.

Oh, bus trips are the best!
