Don’t know if this is a snowy owl or just an albino… But I saw this guy perched up by a farmer’s field on my way to work!

Snowy, if I remember correctly the males don’t have much in the way of spots or markings

He’s so gorgeous and windswept! I wonder what he’s thinking about, he looks so pensive

Nice capture! They get whiter with age, so this is an old one!

Anyone know the interaction with feathers and albinism? Not sure I’ve seen an animal with feathers who are albino, I would be surprised if albinism effects the feathers too though

It’s a male snowy, most, if not all, albinos will have red eyes too

You are so lucky. I love Snowy Owls, but I’ve never seen one in the wild like that.

Dark eyes means it can’t be albino. Leucistic at most (lack of pigment, opposite of melanistic = all black, like black panthers). But more likely a male snowy, they can have very few markings.

Yeah, that’s a male snowy, you can tell by the fluffy talons and smug expression they have

She is the sweetest dog I’ve ever owned but people usually cross to the other side of the street when they see her coming.
