The Tibia to my Fibula

Posts I Like

Carrion Crows (Corvus corone) are normally jet black, whereas this individual has what is called Leucism, which is caused by a lack in the development of the pigment Melanin. 

Leucistic animals differ greatly from each other, even if they are of the same species, as some can have a greater lack of pigment and be pure white, but still retain normal skin and eye colour, and so then are not Albino, or they could have a solitary patch of fur or a feather that is white.

This bird was photographed by me when I was on holiday in Sheffield, in north England in 2011.
