If you are ever privileged enough to see an albino Red Tailed Hawk, or a Red Tailed Hawk in "white phase," it is an experience you will never, ever forget!
We were fortunate enough to have one of these, a tercel, living in a woods near our property, when we resided in Wind Gap, Pennsylvania, back in the late 80's.
A photograph cannot do justice to this breathtaking sight! He looked like an angel! Surely, something sacred and touched by the hand of the Almighty as he soared the depthless, clear blue skies with the sunlight rushing through his wings in shades of glory!
No wonder the Native Americans associated white animals and birds with being spirit gifts from God.
We feel this hawk was a blessing to us too, because the sight of him, playing on the stairways of heaven, never failed to fill all of us with wonder, joy, and an uplifting of spirit.
Now, we remember and honor the gift and spirit of this treasure of Creation with our name...
