Leucistic quail??


Recommended Posts

I took this picture at Sonny Bono National Wildlife Refuge in southern CA on April 27.  I believe the only quail found there is Gambel's.  This sure looks like a male Gambel's, except for the lack of cinnamon coloring on its head and flanks.  Maybe leucism?

Thanks in advance!
