San Antonio, TX stranger
(San Antonio, TX)
This bird showed up a few days ago. First season to see him/ her, and I've lived here my entire life albeit not always bird watching.
The bird is white, the size of a pigeon, but with longer legs. He is alone - no partner or mate seen yet. Between the white plumage, the dark gray/ light black markings around the neck, it looks like a cross between a pigeon and a gull. The pic in flight shows a hawk-like wing style. Pretty aggressive towards the rest of our guests. Only the boat tail grackles pay him no mind. Sorry for The poor quality iPhone pics. I used heavy zoom to get the best look, but resolution and focus suffered. I'm Google and web searched out. Any ideas?
