Leucistic Birds

A few leucistic birds that I have been fortunate to photograph.
Leucisim is an abnormal condition of reduced pigmentation affecting various animals such as birds, that is marked by overall pale color or patches of reduced coloring
and is caused by a genetic mutation which inhibits melanin and other pigments from being deposited in feathers, hair, or skin.
