Leucistic Great Grey Owl -- Leukistinen lapinpöllö

Strix nebulosa

(c) Harry J Lehto

Photographed at Vesanto, Finland on April 1, 1994

Zoom on head
The bird was almost white with very reduced brown markings. Brown coloring was most obvious in the wings.

Apparently the same bird was seen about a year later in Kajaani by P. Helo and J. Ruuskanen. The bird had moved about 300km NNE
