White Crow in Banner Elk

If any one is interested there is what appears to be an albino or leucistic (sp?) crow in a flock around Banner Elk. I'm assuming it was albino (I could only get within about 50 yards of it) but through binocs I could see no black and the bill was light colored. I could NOT make out the eyes but they APPEARED to be light colored but that's more a deductive guess from the image...(?)

I was traveling from Valle Crucis Community Park to Banner Elk via NC 194 and spotted them across from the Bank of America (near the Banner Elk Inn). I took some pics with the cell phone but they are pretty useless as it was so far away.

The park at Valle Crucis is usually a hotspot but Wednesday there was NOTHING moving.

This unusual sighting made up for an otherwise bad day (but since I had taken off work that night-IS there a such thing as a "bad day" of bird watching???)
