I saw an unusual bird with some strange reflections on its body yesterday.


Apparently it got lucky, so did I! :)

Looks more like a partially leucistic bird - immature birds also have a lot of white but not this much. Great photos.

Dinu, thanks for your comments.

[/size]I read about leucistic American robins elsewhere. Just glad I got to see it myself.
