Artist's Description

Please view large…The collectors item is back this year… she is very shy, but I managed to get a few captures through the window… This bird behaves and looks like a black bird. Shis is silver grey with tinges of light blue on her under belly. She is a stunner…I don’t think she is a true Albino, she does not have a red eye. We seem to have a male that wears a skirt… his belly feather are long and almost touch the ground…

FEATURED: THE BIRDS
Albinism and leucism is common in Blackbirds, but there are even more that are “partially albino” (e.g. white head, or white patches on the wings, see photographs below). Albinism is a complete lack of pigment whereas leucistic birds have weak pigmentation and appear “wishy-washy”. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Southland New Zealand Nov. 2012
