One albino Turkey Buzzard image

This bird, a albino Turkey Vulture or Buzzard, was on display in a Lumberjack Festival, in Milton, NW Florida, USA, on 6 March 2010. No cage and the bird sort of co-operated.

Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: AF 90mm Macro Tamron
ISO: 2500
The 'on-camera' speedlight was also used.

He is sort of a odd looking bird...but it's a good shot.

Striking in appearance and from reading a bit about albino turkey vultures very seldom found in the wild because they are probably not tolerated by normally colored turkey vultures and the lightness of their plumage will not allow them to soar on updrafts like their darker counterparts.

He seems to say:
is not my fault if I am so beautiful... :)
Very interesting.

This bald head tells story about the evolution. One could stare at the bird`s portrait as it`s a human one.

Quite a handsome devil, well captured.
