Albino Peregrine Falcon

This little guy is a carcara falcon nesting in my yard.

I found an interesting article on the rare albino peregrine falcon only found in Patagonia. Someone tried to smuggle 4 eggs out of the country but was arrested and the eggs returned. It has a somewhat happy ending! See the link below.
