What a gorgeous owl! ❤️❤️
The owl is a spirit helper of mine and this one is amazingly gorgeous!!
Feathers are like midnight sky, Absolutely very rare… 💥🎉💥
This young barn owl is one in a million after being born with a rare genetic condition that has made her feathers jet black.
This may be the most common and highly distributed of the species, but a black barn owl is extremely rare. These one in a million birds have a breathtaking looking, yet due to their condition they don’t survive in wild.
Stunning owl 💞
Their unusual coloring is the result of a genetical condition called melanism that occurs once in 100,000. Unlikely [alb.inism], who’s a lack of skin pigmentation, the melanism occurs because of the skin or the plumage’s black pigmentation. Unfortunately, because of their rare condition, black barn owls end up [ki.c.ked] out of the nest as chicks. Their own mothers get confused by their unlikely coloring.
Can: The parents think that because a chick is not white they shouldn’t feed it.
Such beautiful markings!!! 💖
Although living in captivity is not an option for a wild animals, for these rare birds is the only option as their chances of surviver in the wild would be extremely slim.
Besides their unusual pigmentation, melanistic owls also suffer of poor eye sighting and they can develop hearing problems.
Absolutely stunning and special 😍🎉💥🎉💥
Has it made it difficult for her hunting do you think or is she being taken care of?
