    I assumed it was filtered/altered but what about the yellow tint BG? Freak of nature? Albino with ONLY eye pigment?

    White peacocks are pretty common.

    @CathyLong:
    Isn’t that what they generally say about albinos? They also say about white tigers that they’re actually sick, not albino.
    This peacock is very beautiful nevertheless. I wish I could have one of his feathers.

    well albino is a lack of pigmentation in the skin, a melanoma deficiency which is why teh eyes are also pale or red. Just being “bleached” in the feather region is no different than say, a white hen or a dove. It has to do with feather color genetics and not a defficiency or danger of sunlight exposure. 🙂

    I saw one of these guys in Jamaica. I have pictures somewhere.

    We’ve got a bunch of these at the local zoo, where whole packs of them and their little baby pea-birds squak at you.

    @nyokki: haha. I wish. I was in Jamaica years before I had a cellphone or there were digital cameras.

    My grandparents have several of these, I find the colored ones prettier.
