The White Crow

I buy, sell, and collect. I am not, however, your normal collector. I enjoy the one of a kind, the rare, and most importantly the strange. Thus, the newest piece in my collection, a taxidermy, (partially) albino crow. Albinism in birds occurs in only about 1 in every 1800. Albino crows are so rare that when one is spotted it is news worthy. And as rare as a live one is, a stuffed one is even more rare. The Museum of Vancouver has one and there are a few others in private collections. Now, I don't think my crow is worth a ton of money but it is mine and I will never meet another person who owns one. And that's what I like.
