another partial albino redtail hawk in my area

I do not have a photo of this bird yet, but I have found a second partial albino redtail hawk in my study area. It is almost a "carbon copy" of the first. Both birds are adult males and both have typical ventral plumage, but their scapulars show white while in flight. The first is near the Clover Stornetta Dairy on Old Napa Road and the new bird is on Live Oak Lane in Petaluma. The leucistic redtail is still alive and well in West Petaluma. It is a male also.
