Unusual, but nicely marked...............would you shoot it....?

I think it would be frowned upon at the very least in the local park.

I shot one a couple of years ago that was virtually white. It was still capable of poking holes in the silage clamp sheet so I was very non discriminatory.

Seen a few jackdaw fledgeing's this year with white patches also one blackbird full grown with patches.

Wonder if the morphs are breeding the gene more in recent years. Where they would have succumb to predation in the past.

With the increase number of predators (RSPB figures) I would have thought the opposite?  Just my take on it.
