Taking a break from whatever else I want to drone on about to drone on about weird birds. Lost Lagoon seems to be a magnet for oddness these days. The Canada Goose below has a rare condition. It's not sick and the photo has not been photoshopped to make it look pale. What it has is a genetic abnormality called Leucism, or leukism. It is a mutation that prevents pigment from being properly deposited on their feathers. It is not albinism as it is only the feathers that is affected. The skin, legs and eyes are normal.
