Went riding around by the river to try out these binocular camera I got as a gift.I saw some hawks along way off by a forest preserve,at least I think they are hawks.There were 4 of them and 2 flew over to a house that is on the road you turn off of and landed.So I drove over and got this pic.Are they hawks?I only saw one other white hawk in this state and that was in Lake Bluff.Here they are-

The binocular cameras are not that great but only cost 35 bucks

Sounds silly but I think they are called white hawks, they do have a long scientific name but they go by white hawks. I could be wrong and I would love to know what they are if they arent white hawks.

Thanks for sharing!!!

Not sure on the first picture.
Second picture looks like a woodpecker...maybe a downey or a hairy?
The last picture looks like a Coopers Hawk.

It was the first pic I was wondering about but now I will know a downey when I see one. 8)~
I was just on google trying to find info on white hawks in Illinois.It says they are only in south america and Texas.There is an Albino redtail.Still not sure.
The one I saw up North close to Wisconsin was a Northern Harrier and they are endangered.

My friend Raptor put the link to this thread on a bird site Bird Forums,This was a reply that another agreed with:

I think I see a hint of a belly band on the bird on the left. Maybe Red-tailed Hawks? One albino or partial albino?

The photo is poor quality and need to go out with a better camera for some better pics.Another friend also sent pic to a outdoor writer who is an IL bird expert but he is busy and may take some time for a reply.I also read that some are getting a you have been banned message from this site.I think it was those outside of USA and Canada.

Edited for link http://birdforum.net/showthread.php?p=2 ... ost2015925
Pretty neat linking 2 sites :helloooooo
