GYR Falcon

12/12/12  Skagit Flats- Sullivan Road -which is North of D'Arcy Road  3:30 P.M
1 Gyr Falcon- described as white, but also black, and gray. The perched falcon had a very long tail which was tapered- this is distinctive. The head was very light gray. There was a dark belly band. The chest was white. The under tail was white. The wings and back were of brown, with distinct white flecks. There appeared to be no facial markings. The body of the hawk was very robust. The hawk appeared to be very calm and relaxed. There were ducks very near in a rain pond.
