Animal colours : White predominant Birds [ rules below, dont make me DQ you for the sake of a few moments to read the rules ]

Challenge #33 in the The Company Of Animals series. Hosted by Patchandcrew.
Challenge has finished
Next in the animal colours set, lets see your best shots of any species of bird whose feathers are predominantly white [ other colours/markings are fine but there must be clearly more white than other colours *within shot*, ie a white/mostly white face but dark body should result in a head portrait entry, if the balance is too far from white predominant I will DQ ;) ]. If unsure please ask ;)
