Nice capture Mike. I've seen a several leucistic birds, mostly robins, but never a Canada Goose.

Thank you Doc. It's certainly not common, but we have so many Canada geese in my area, that I do get a chance to see both piebald and leucistic Canada geese on occasion. Bach on July 21st, I posted shots of a couple of leucistic Canada geese here, that were on a pond that I frequently photograph waterfowl at. The two that I found back then, were from a family of 8 geese.

Very interesting information - had never heard of this. Thanks for posting. Lee

Thank you very much Lee. Few people are aware of leucism unless they've run across it, and wanted to know why the bird or animal is colored in such a manner. There is another genetic condition called piebaldism, where patches or areas of the bird or animal have light or no color (white). I also got a shot of a piebald Canada goose that I'm going to post up pretty soon.

Great idea...seems to be working pretty well on those. Kingfishers.

Gorgeous. Absolutely.

Love the colours in that top one. Truly Eye Catching. Certainly not intended as a pun.

These are both really nice shots, Lee. The hawk is definitely starring down his nose at you. He may be a little put out with you, interrupting his quiet time.:lol:
