Hirosaki Botanical Gardens - a white peacock

Next to the main entry of Hirosaki castle (the southen end)  is a botanic garden.  We figured since we weren't likely to be in Hirosaki again for a while, to take the chance to have a look.   We couldn't stay long, but the white peacock there put on a performance that made it very worthwhile going to.

And a not quite so attractive angle

White?! Albino, or a white species? He's a rather handsome fellow. :)

I thought they were albino, but they aren't they are just white. I am not sure whether these have had their feathers lopped like a Tokyo ginko or whether they reflect the age of the bird.
