Interesting! Never saw one... you would think they would do great up here in the Great White, like snowshoe hares and so on...

Archibald; leucisism is quite uncommon in all species of birds and animals worldwide. There are literally thousands of Canada geese and other waterfowl here in the area that I live. I look for leucistic colored birds all the time. It is strictly a genetic mutation that can affect very small numbers of a population. I've been very fortunate in finding not only leucistic birds, but also piebald birds (another form of a genetic, lack of color mutation) on a few occasions. To be able to photograph them is really exciting to me.

Thanks for the interesting info. I should look more closely at flocks of birds to see if I can spot leucistic specimens. If I can get a shot of one, I will post it.

I don't know how you do it Shalu. You get sooo many great predator catching prey shots (including this one of the cormorant). You must only get a couple hours of sleep a day. LOL :lol: Seriously, your photos are outstanding.

Great Horned Owl

I can imagine your excitement. A really lovely owl, photo.
He looks a bit grumpy.

Chestnut-colored woodpecker, male

That's awesome. Mentioned before, my understanding of woodpeckers was one from 'Woody Woodpecker'!
No idea they were so colourful.

Mike those ducks are striking. Beautiful markings.

Hard not to comment favourably on many others here.
There's a beautiful array of birds portrayed here
