Unofficial poll on albinistic, leucistic birds

14 years ago

I don't know how many are following the discussion on MrBass's leucistic palm warbler here and his fantastic photos here but it came up in the discussion just how rare are albinistic or leucistic birds. So I thought it would be fun to have un-scientific poll with the forum members here.

If you would like a really good explanantion of albinism and leucistic birds, Cornell has a good page here.

So please reply with the following ...

Have you seen an albinistic (true albino - all white with pink eyes and feet), partially albino (bird with white coloring but still shows some typical coloring), or leucistic (bird shows paler coloring then usual).

Species of bird seen

How many years have you actively bird watched?
