My First Albino Pics
« on: March 16, 2009, 07:02:05 PM »
I managed to get the camera out in time to catch a couple bad pics of this little snow bird. She's my good luck charm for the year.

You guys see many albino turkeys?
May the morning silence be broken with the wisp of vanes trailing blades to their mark.

I've seen em in the Blues also and had an albino hen I used to see on a fairly regular basis in the Asotin Creek drainage. It's been a couple years since I last saw her though.

I have seen a few white turkeys in stevens county as well.  Was told they may not be a true albino.  Just a different color phase.
It's not always as it seems

Still looking for my first Albino.  A lady in North Idaho I work with sent me a picture of an Albino Jake last year in her backyard, but her husband is keeping others off the property till it grows a longer beard!   :(

Yelp, I haven't even made it over to Stevens Co. yet. I usually hunt over there, but may try a bit closer next month. This spring is pretty much dedicated to my kids, so I may not venture quite so far, in trade for more trips. My oldest son is bent on tagging a bird with his bow, and my other two have only been out a few times. So, I may knock on a few doors to see about gaining access to some private land. I'd like to avoid combat hunting while my daughter is with me as much as possible. I have a couple good hike-in spots, but not sure about the snow. Always a puzzle.
