White Tips – Bald Eagle with Leucism

In Bald Eagles, Pictures by G

White Tips. After seeing this Bald Eagle for three weeks out of photo range, I was fortunate enough to get close enough to get some shots of this beautiful bird. The eagle has a rare pigmentation, called Leucism, causing its wingtips to go white, as well as its talons. It is one of the most beautiful birds in flight as the wing tips really accent its motion.
