*  There is still one at the golf course on Route 196 in Hartford, NY.  I have distant photos, but saw it again a few weeks ago. 

* I have nice photos of one at the WC Grasslands on Route 4 at thg he end of Cary Road.  This may be the same individual as previously reported.

I found one Dec. 2018 in the Ft Edward grasslands. It was subsequently banded by Bob Yunick

I saw yet another report of an all-white Red-tailed Hawk. This one in Ulster County - away from where one that had been previously reported.

So. Are all-white Red-tails increasing in number and distribution?

Seems so to me. 

Do you know of the location of one? Without giving specific location, can you provide a general idea where it is/was?

I know for example that there were the following:
Millbrook, Dutchess County - nesting female which was around for about 15 years, at least; not recent
Stone Ridge, Ulster County - another nesting female around for maybe 20 years; no recent reports;
New Paltz, Ulster County - recent
Near Columbia County Airport - Ghent, Recent but no reports in the last few years;
Near Hoosick, Rensselaer County; few sightings from about 10 years ago

Did I miss any?

Current ones?
