Yesterday I went to Lincoln Park in the rain. Saw a lot of cool things that one does not see on pretty sunny day. One thing stood out & of course I got only one shot at a photo.
Here is what I am pretty sure is a leucistic crow or more sexy term is “caramel crow”. Not an albino crow since he is not 100% white or cream.
After reading this blog post by Kaeli Swift, (professor & expert on crows) it is not quite as simple as one would think. She even has a photo of Alice in the Rabbit Hole. Check it out if you are thirsty to learn more – CorvidResearch
The photo is not perfect but when he took off I could see white feathers. You bet I will go back to the park & search for this guy.
Leave you with the question below… thoughts and suggestions appreciated.
