Doug, there seem to be a lot of leucistic Black-capped Chickadees in the Seattle area. We’ve had numerous different individuals in our yard in Maple Leaf over the 30 years we’ve lived here, I presume related individuals, and I’ve heard other people mention such birds as well.

Juvenile filling in its feathers? Photos here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dougplummer/sets/72157719425489573 <https://www.flickr.com/photos/dougplummer/sets/72157719425489573>
