White turkey hen
This is only the third time we have seen this girl (and the first time I had my camera), she is so shy probably because she stands out so much. The flock has been in our neighborhood for around a month but I live up in the foothills between two creeks and there is a lot of oak scrub but very few roads or houses so access is restricted unless you hike.
My brother (who owns a house between the same two creeks) saw her about a month ago and told me he saw an albino turkey. He is an avid hunter but so he knows game birds but still, my first thought was an escaped domestic bird in a flock of wild birds. Yesterday I saw her and realised two things, first she is not an albino and second it isn't a domestic bird!
Here are the photos, she would not come out int the open for very long so I didn't get any great pictures but these are the best I could do without scaring her off.
While I was watching her two toms were displaying, I got some good photos of them, here is one I liked,
