Yes there was a white Crow in lancashire many years ago somewhere near the Hyndburn area. Around the same time there were also two brown/white Magpies between Heywood/Rochdale both parents were normal. one of the youngsters then paired up with a normal bird the following year and they too had 1 brown/white & 1 normal young. ;)
