Dark Phase Rough-legged Hawk with barred patterns and white beak patch

Observation details

Very unusual plumage on dark male Rough-legged Hawk - leucistic(?) bird with white "skull-cap" and beak patch - barred patterns throughout the wings and lower body. Have seen this RLHA on a number of occasions in this area. Easily recognizable, incredibly beautiful raptor. These photos are from another date (12-23-2016) and 1/4 mile away.
