Subject: [cobirds] Re: leucistic turkey in Big Thompson canyon

I saw 4 (3F 1M) leucistic turkeys in Pueblo earlier this week. I Googled
the phenomena when I returned home and apparently experts think 1 in 100
can be leucistic with females being more common.

Here's my eBird checklist with a couple pictures of the tom and 1 of the
females...
