White Crow Info?
2007-07-24 18:58:27 ET

I could find hardly anything about white crows, I even looked on wiki. I found something that said it was a mythical bird thought of as a good omen in India, but the picture below was not photoshoped and i have found a couple of other pictures of white crows. Some may suffer from albanism, but the crow in the picture has blue eyes not red. Does anyone know if blue eyes can be a trait of albanism? I know there are verying types of albanism in humans...I may even have a form of it. Oculocutanious albanism type two. I carry the majority of the traits.My friend actually found that out and he thinks that it is very likely that I have it. Anyways my eyes are a very pale blue naturally. So maybe that has something to do with why the crows eyes are blue. If anyone finds anymore information on the white crow, could you send me the link or let me know what you find out? It would be appreciated. :)

I believe there are varying degrees of albinism in animals as well.

Yeah I know that, but I wasn't for sure if that included blue eyes or not...I know that some crows will have white primary feathers or something along those lines but and all white crow with blue eyes not sure if thats and albino or just a very rare occurance...do you get what I'm saying? I'm not very good at getting what I want to say out in writing. :P

I found my answer.

Even in species characterized by being all black, one will still occasionally find variations, most of which appear to result from varying degrees of albinism, such as:

an otherwise all-black crow stunningly contrasted by a full set of brilliant, pure-white primary feathers.
complete covering in varying shades of grey (generally tending toward the darker side)
blue or red, rather than swarthy eyes (blue being more common than red).
Some combination of the above

Instead of looking up the specific white crow I looked up crows and found this. Yay. lol
