I have put this up more for interest than anything. It is a genetic variation of the Red Kite which is much paler then normal. It is not an albino as it still has normal coloured eyes. They are called Leucistic. As you can see this one is not that much different underneath than normal but is much lighter on top. They can be almost completely white. This particular bird is last years chick. They tend to be driven off by other birds and this one did better after the initial frenzy had died down a bit.
