All White?

John O'Donnell kindly sent me two pictures of a Magpie he photographed at Langdon Cliffs.

He says "when walking up at Langdon cliffs (top car-park) on the 22nd we saw a juvenile albino magpie being attended by a couple of adult birds,"

I have seen a pure white Carrion Crow, but never a Magpie. It is certainly a very striking bird.

I agree, Tony. That is one odd looking bird.
I find albinism/leucism a very interesting subject.

I wonder if anyone twitches albino birds only.! :-) How long would the list be ?
