Shot of falcon from december behind him. Seems some confusion on what he is.
Nice shot and capture...
Outstanding capture. Thank you for sharing.
Without seeing the front and not knowing much about Canadian Bird of Prey, I am taking a wild guess. This could be a Gyrfalcon. Maybe someone who lives in Canada or a better birder than I, can verify this. Good Luck!
(Chinese) Fellow birder pitching in here...definitely a Gyr, the size and overall structure of this bird rules out pretty much everything, even Peregrine, which can be eliminated by the lack of a distinct teardrop pattern shape below the eye.
Confirmed by the BC rare bird alert as a Gyrfalcon!!! Very good find!!!
What a beautiful falcon.
