Albino Chickadee

10/25/10 – This years crop of chickadees produced a very rare treat, an albino chickadee. It was a little confusing and shocking at first, to see a mysterious white bird at the feeder, but after having it around the feeder for a few days, it definitely seems to be a chickadee that lacks the normal coloration. Even though he has been hanging around for a few days, he has been fairly camera-shy. These are the best pictures that we have so far. Hopefully he will become comfortable posing for the camera in the near future. -Marc
