For about 2 months now, we've had either a Pied, or the perhaps rarer, White-backed Chickadee coming regularly to our seed feeder. This bird, derived from Black-capped stock, has a nearly pure white crown, surrounded by a black ring, and nearly all white back (mantle, scapulars, coverts, tertials and maybe secondaries). Quite a striking example of leucism. I'm happy to send pix to anyone interested, or arrange a viewing for anyone totally into it. Happy Birding! - Jon Houghton, Edmonds jonbirder at comcast.net mailto:jonbirder at comcast.net
