While driving South on Clarksville Hwy. (41) this afternoon, just South of New 
Hope Rd. (249) I saw a pale red-tailed hawk. I quickly drove home to

get my camera, as I had never seen a leucistic red-tail. The bird was kind 
enough to stick around for me, and I got some decent images despite

poor shooting conditions. I noticed right away that the bird was not "splotchy" 
as is common with leucism, and after conferring with field

guides and more experienced Ornithologists, I'm confident the bird is the 
"Krider's" subspecies.


If anyone cares to see images of the bird, or get better directions for 
viewing, please feel free to email me.


Good birding!
