Breakfast Time

This juvenile budgerigar (parakeet), is an albino naturally lacking all pigmentation. Like all albino animals, her eyes appear red when the light strikes them from certain angles. Albinism is a recessive genetic trait in budgies, who are native to Australia but are commonly kept as pets in many regions of the world. Photo by Daniel M. Reck.
