White Turkey Vultures?!

from Everglades National Park
Yep, you are seeing correctly! This leucistic Turkey Vulture has been spotted in the Flamingo area of Everglades National Park in the past.
Leucism is when an animal has a partial loss of pigment which results in a white or pale coloration. Notice its brown eyes? That’s one way to know that this bird is leucistic and not albino.
