Default Piebald fawn?

Would you call this a piebald fawn? I have seen pics of piebald deer, but never a fawn. Took this picture after my wife exclaimed "What the heck is that? , It's white."

It certainly appears to be. Will be interesting to watch it grow and see if it lightens more or darkens. Cool picture.

Hopefully we will get to see it as it grows. She saw it from our kitchen window and I was able to take the pics from our back porch.

That’s cool. Looks like a little Fallow Deer with that color. Definitely a piebald.

does not appear to be a ribald to me. I have three piebald on my place, there from very small fawns. This one just looks lighter brown than generally thought normal. Very cool looking deer.

I think it’s just another iteration of a leucistic deer, lacking enough pigment to be a normal color but not a true albino. That considered opinion is worth exactly what y’all paid for it.

Default update

I hadn't seen the white fawn lately until this evening. I got a couple of pics and he (she?) has grown. According to a very knowledgeable friend who knows whitetails, this deer is most likely a melanistic deer, as opposed to a piebald.

Anyway, please excuse the poor quality of the pics, since it was pretty low light when I took them.

Although it is blurry, at least you can see its head. I will try to get more another day.

Leucistic, not melanistic. Melanistic deer are dark brown.

Cool deer for sure!

Yep, I agree. I had to look up leucistic. But definitely lacking pigmentation, but not albino.
