Those fancy leggin's probably make him popular with the ladies

I didn't notice this when I took the picture but when going thru the cutting room stages I saw his white leg feather's and some weird looking white show of other feathers trying to be white along his wings. This condition is called "Leucism" which is the lack of melinin which affects pigmentation. It is usually a very random thing and not symetrical as is this bird's condition. Birds and/or animals with this condition are said to be leucistic. A few white feather's here and there is common among Purple Martins

It looks so odd because it is nearly perfect, you might think it was photoshopped and even tho I probably could have done so, I promise I didn't.

I'll have to be on the look out for him and get some more images. I didn't see him yesterday but will continue to look for him.
