    Photog Thinks RTH, I Think Otherwise..

    I agree with the above points; it just appears that facial plumage is actually plumage and not a "shadow" or something else. Very bizarre. Thank you for weighing in.
  2. Good Afternoon, Looking for the experts to weigh in here. This photo was taken yesterday in Tiverton, RI. The photo is not my own; the one who photographed it believes it's a RTH. I can see a very faint belly band (I think), but that face says falcon to me. Any help would be appreciated. ~ Matthew

    Wish we had these guys in NYS; they're just gorgeous. This is the closest I've come to a dark-morph... Kind of cheating.

    What's up with this Snowy Owl?

    Not every day you see a pure white one like this. I thought it was cool. Thanks for the info Akiley!

    Confirm juvenile Cooper's

    I thought the same thing.
  9. Good evening, This is not my photo. Someone shared it in a northeast bird group I'm in. People were admiring the bird displaying, but no one mentioned its plumage, which jumped off the page at me. Can anyone tell me why this bird is SO white? Is it leucistic? Thank you in advance, Matt

    Ya'll can see why I had/am having trouble with this then?? And I mean this with all due respect to the OP on Facebook, but they seem incapable/unaware of what photoshopping even is. You all have surely heavily swayed me towards CH, but I'm still not positive. Thank you all for weighing in.

    And is that white supercilium not an indicator? Just the angle of the photo? It appears pretty pronounced.

    I did not. I saw it in a FB group I'm in, where people were saying cooper's. As mentioned above, I've never seen them make off with a squirrel, and again, when I looked quickly, I immediately thought NG. The experts seem to think otherwise, so I defer to them, but at the same time, this isn't exactly my first year of birding lol.
