1White Peacock :
 
White Peacock/Peafowl have a genetic condition called leucism which causes pigment cells to fail to migrate from the neural crest during development. Leucistic peafowl can produce pigment but not deposit the pigment to their feathers. This results in the complete lack of colouration in their plumage and blue-grey eye colour.
 
 
2Grey Crowned Crane :
 
The grey-crowned crane is a bird in the crane family, Gruidae. It is found in eastern and southern Africa and is the national bird of Uganda. I captured this picture in a Bird Sanctuary in Hyderabad, India.  
 

 
3. House Crow :
 
The forehead, crown, throat and upper breast are a richly glossed black, whilst the neck and breast are a lighter grey-brown in colour. The wings, tail, and legs are black. There are regional variations in the thickness of the bill and the depth of colour in areas of the plumage.  
 

 
4. White Pigeons :
 
The pure white pigeon or Rock Dove is associated with all good traits: peace, hope, love, goodwill, and family to name a few.  
 

 
5. Bald Eagle :
 
It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting.  
 

 
6. House Sparrow :
 
The house sparrow is strongly associated with human habitation and can live in urban or rural settings.   
 

 
7. Indian Skimmer Seabird :
 
They are mainly found in rivers or estuaries. They are very brightly marked in black, white and orange, making them difficult to miss.  
 

 
8. Green Bee-Eater : 
 
These are mostly found in Southeast Asia.
 

 
9. Red-Whiskered Bulbul :
 
They are very common in hill forests and urban gardens  
 

 
10. Brahminy Myna :
 
The brahminy myna or brahminy starling is a member of the starling family of birds. It is usually seen in pairs or small flocks in open habitats on the plains of the Indian subcontinent.
