Albino Pheasant ?

Albino Pheasant

Just driving home and saw this bird, never seen one in driving the same sort of route for 25 years?

Any ideas

  • If it's got pink eyes then It's probably a true albino (can't tell from the photo), otherwise it's a leucistic pheasant. In any event I don't rate it's chances of survival highly with it being so conspicuous to predators. Nice capture.
