Leucism

Leucism : a condition in which there is partial loss of pigmentation in an animal resulting in white,
pale, or patchy coloration of the skin, hair, feathers, scales or cuticle, but not the eyes. (Wikipedia)
As in this Northwestern Crow.

  1. It seems strange to see a crow that is not black.

  2. That is a very different looking crow, not altogether unappealing. (Thanks for your opinion on the lens - I took it out and practiced more with it today. Altogether lots of fun. And I'm looking forward to seeing more ceramics.)

  3. I like how your pale crow complements his background of pebbles. We had the opposite of leucism here when a species of Peppered Moth started turning black to fit in with the polluted city environment.
