White winged Hooded Crow (in Turkey)

Hi everyone,
I have seen a Hooded Crow with white wings recently. I could take some pics today. Normally Hooded Crows do not have white wings like that. What do u think about this bird?

Thank u for your help in advance...

Probably leucistic- missing certain pigments in the feather making them appear white.

Yeah, i'd agree. It would've certainly got me going for the first few seconds though!
