(Albino) Wild turkey?

Meleagris gallopavo

Description:

There were two completely white turkeys in a flock of about 30 birds, many of which were juveniles and at least four large toms. These pictures were taken with a cell phone and I don't believe there is enough evidence in these pictures to say they are true albino or something from domestic stock. I'll be working in this area over the next few weeks so hopefully I'll acquire better pictures and update this spotting.

Habitat:

Spotted near the Cle Elum river in the foothills of the Cascade mountains. 610 meters. Mostly coniferous forest.
