Leucistic Dark-Eyed Junco I by eelhsamarie Leucistic Dark-Eyed Junco I by eelhsamarie
I have found out at last that this little bird is a leucistic dark-eyed junco. I had begun to believe he/she was a junco, but now I know for sure.:)

(Leusistic being, for those who may not know, a partially white colour pigment. Like albino, except of course, albino is completely white with a pink eye.)

Wow how cool! I've seen leucistic sparrows before, but this is my first time seeing a leucistic junco!

He/she looks to maybe be a junco with feather coloring gone wrong.

Yes, that is what I am thinking. Even if I never know for sure, I really am glad I got to see him, he is beautiful.:)

Yeah:)It's always neat to be able to enjoy and appreciate wildlife, and all other animals. And it's really special to see something different like this.:)

I know I love wildlife mostly things that can't or won't hurt you but I have seen on the internet starlings being fully white or speckled like this little bird.

Yes, I e-mailed a couple who have published bird books, and they told me it is a leucistic dark-eyed junco. (since only part of it's feathers are white, it's not an albino).
