Pretty cool American Robin (Todus migratorius) with some white feathers around the neck. That condition is called leucism, which is a genetic mutation that prevents melanin and other pigments from been deposited normally on feathers, resulting in pale or muted colors on the feathers. bird #birds #birdwatching #birder #birding #birdphotography #birdingtours #birdingguide #lacuabirding #colorado #aves #americanrobin #leucistic #leucism #colorado #birdbiology #cornelllabofornithology #birdingcolorado #becurious

This peacock is not albino, it has leucism. He still has his dark eyes. #leucism #peacock #a7rii

After weeks of trying to capture this bloody bird, success at last! Heโ€™s a leucistic blackbird, which means he lacks a few patches of melanin pigment in his feathers. This oneโ€™s apparently been breeding at the livery for three years now so his condition doesnโ€™t seem to be an obstacle for him and heโ€™s super friendly. He popped out this morning while we were drinking our coffee in the sun, picking through the straw and hay for brunch โ˜€๏ธ

Since I mentioned leucism in my last post, I thought I would also post this photo of a peacock in Sidney that has full leucism. You can tell it isnโ€™t albino because itโ€™s eye isnโ€™t red or pink. ๐Ÿ“ท: @photosinnaturebynancy DATE: April 26, 2018 ๐Ÿฆ‰ Thanks for sharing your photo!

Dark-eyed Junco with partial leucism (the white patches). Partial and full leucism can happen in a variety of bird species. For an excellent explanation of leucism visit @thomasbarbin feed. Also listen to the Bird Note podcast as they recently did an episode about leucism vs. albinism. Very interesting info. ๐Ÿ“ท: @thomasbarbin

I know Iโ€™ve been posting a lot, but a lot of cool stuff has been happening at work. A SUPER RARE MUTATION on one of our Queens has been spotted! The mutation is known as leucism and has a one in a million chance of occurring. This isnโ€™t the same as albinism, which cannot occur in insects, but still involves lack of pigment. Lo and behold, the Gray Queen of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden! Swipe to see the original color.

Look what I found! It's a leucistic rock pigeon. I'm going to take my good camera out tomorrow and see if I can find it again for a really good photo!

Blue Eyed Lucy! This girl just had her pre-lay shed today so she should be on eggs in about 30 days. If you look close you can see her shed skin behind her. Each egg she lays will have another Blue Eyed Lucy inside. Three months and counting until the babies have all hatched!

She may not be considered โ€˜cuteโ€™ by others because of her ears and scars, but she was the friendliest kangaroo Iโ€™ve met in some time! She has leucism, a rare genetic trait that caused her to have this beautiful white fur. Itโ€™s a lack of pigmentation which in turn, makes her susceptible to skin cancer. Unfortunately due to the skin cancer she has lost parts of her ears and has some scars but is still beautiful to me! #kangaroo #macropod #kangaroosofinstagram #leucism #whitekangaroo #australia #wildlife

A Dark-eyed Junco with partial leucism.
Leucism occurs when there is a defect in the pigment cells causing them to fail to differentiate or migrate throughout the body. Leucism is similar to albinism, but differs in that all pigment types are reduced in leucism. In albinism only melanin is reduced. Another difference between leucism and albinism is eye colour. Albinos are unable to produce melanin in their eyes so their eyes will be red because you can see through to the blood vessels. Animals with leucism have normal coloured eyes because the defected pigment cells originate from the neural crest. The pigmented cells in the eye are not derived from the neural crest so they lack the defect.

Leucism is genetic so it can be passed on to offspring. With partial leucism the extent and pattern can vary quite a bit between relatives. Iโ€™ve only seen birds with partial leucism, I hope to one day see a completely white bird that isnโ€™t supposed to be white.

I hope this reads coherent enough. My brain has been feeling pretty scattered lately lol. If this wasnโ€™t clear, or you want to know a bit more I got this information from the Wikipedia page for Leucism.

Edit: if you arenโ€™t familiar with the Dark-eyed Junco the white spots (aside from the outer tail feathers) are normally not white.

2018 Big Day: 106 species. Same number as last year but not necessarily the same species.
Sighting that made me happiest? This one - the leucistic Canada Goose that we saw regularly last year. It's in a different area but only 7.25 miles, as the goose flies, from last year's location. When we didn't see it there this year, we thought it might not have survived the winter. So happy to see it alive and well!

Happy to announce we will be welcoming a good amount of Leucistic Axolotls to our amphibian family next week! We currently only house Golden Gilled Wilds, Green Wilds & Green Fluorescent Protein Albino Axolotls. Very excited to continue to study and care for such amazing creatures! ๐Ÿ‰

Not sure what form of albinoism my frog has. Leucism or xanthism? #greenandgoldenbellfrog #xanthochromia #leucistic #leucism

Today I encountered this leucistic common blackbird. Leucism is a condition in which there is a partial loss of pigmentation in an animal resulting in white coloration of the feathers (or skin/hair). Unlike albinism, it is caused by a reduction in multiple types of pigment, not just melanin. #leucism #albino #bird #blackbird #visitcz #igerscz #dnescestujem #dnesfotim #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeonearth #naturephotography #nature #yourshot #natgeo #photooftheday #czechphotography #czechboy #czechrepublic @naturephotoportal #featherperfection #your_best_birds #birds_captures #feather_perfection #natgeowild #naturehippys_ #naturehippys #holiday #animal #animals

The leucistic Grey-headed albatross chick has lost all of it's down feathers and is ready to fledge. We have given it a metal and a plastic ring. Hopefully it returns to Marion in a few years to breed! โ€ข

This stunning animal has not been edited with computer programs, is real. You may think is photoshopped zebra or donkey, the skin looked bleached as if suffering from #leucism. Do you remember #white #giraffe spotted in #Tarangire National #Park in #Tanzania, by Dr. Derek Lee? This is NOT the same issue to the #animal in the photo. Animal in the photo is called ZONKEY, #zonkey is a #hybrid of #zebra and #donkey. The questions will be. WHAT IS MAIN CHARACTER OF ZONKEY?
