Eastern Screech Owl - White
Luna is a permanent resident at the Peace River Wildlife Center in Punta Gorda, Florida. He has leucism, a genetic mutation that affects bird feathers. Lack of pigments leaves the feathers white. He is a visitor favorite and often travels to schools and other venues representing Peace River Wildlife Center. About two years old, Luna would not have survived in the wild where he was found. For more pictures of Luna, a separate album devoted to him is also on this website.
