If you're referring to the white female Clay and I caught, she didn't look anything like a typical white bird as an immature, but as an adult was pretty dang white. I called her darker than white, lighter than silver, but there was no doubt she was something special. I could dig up some pics, scan to the computer and try to post them but no guarantees, hopefully I have some of her in both plumages.

Hello Ray:

Yes, that is the one I am thinking of. As far as I know, it has been the only white passage bird captured in Montana for falconry, but you would know more than I on that subject.

Hopefully you can find some photos. The photo I remember is with you and Clay holding the bird after capture, and of course you had your classic xxxx-eating grin on your face.

Does anyone know or have an idea about what coloration the very brown bird above would be in adult plumage?

Best wishes,
