Today near Toppenish Creek in the lower Yakima Valley I saw a female
Brewer's Blackbird with extensive white on her head. Looking with my scope
I could also see that her bill was lighter than normal and her eyes were
both red. I've found complete albino birds before with red eyes, but never
seen red eyes in a leucistic bird. It sure seemed unusual. I posted one of
my digiscoped photos on Flickr:
