White birds of Heaven: Isola Bella, Italy

On Isola Bella (“Beautiful Island”) on Maggiore Lake you might encounter quite a peculiar bird.

    They are ridiculous and yet truly beautiful at the same time. Your photos capture them completely.

      I was as well surprised! I thought they were albinos, but their eyes are not red. HereI found they are genetic variations of the blue and green more common peacock.
