Traveling home from Thanksgiving on Saturday afternoon, pleasantly surprised to see a Leucistic Red Tail Hawk sitting on a haybale beside Highway 169, east side, about a mile north of Iola, just north of where 169 is closed and detours. Passing truck spooked it away to a nearby cottonwood but was able to get a good pic with 300 mm lens. ID confirmed by my favorite professional ornithologist (my son). Low rez pic available on request.
