Following up on Dan's post (thanks, Dan).  

I had never heard the term "Ino", but I became familiar with the term "leucistic" a few years ago after I photographed an unusual crow at Marina Park in Edmonds. All of its feathers were white, but it had dark eyes.  I was told it was leucistic and not albino because its eyes were normal, like the owl in the article posted up by Dan.

So what is the difference between an Ino bird and a leucistic one?
