Leucistic Jackdaw

Thought some of you might like to see the bird I saw last week on my way to Chester Zoo - it isn't an escapee, but a fully-leucistic Jackdaw. Never seen one of these before and doubt I will again!

Interesting sighting! Last year I saw a leucistic starling among a flock of regular ones, in London. I should have the photo somewhere...

Cool bird, escapee or not!
I think that just like the proverbial american white buffalo, this is a good sign for the next birding year. ;) Maybe you should do a Big Year! :mrgreen:
