Large bird

by JO Ann Keeney
(Crestwood MO )

This bird was perched on my backyard fence. It looked to be nearly 12" high. Hooked beak, dark grey feathers with some white mixed in. The underside was completely white.


I have seen this before swooping down very low in a formation of three of these large birds. Very dramatic. They swoop down within 6-8' of the ground.
