Birdchick Blog: Albino Black-capped Chickadee

Albino Black-capped Chickadee

This fluffy white cuteness comes to us from Deb Pflueger of Avon, Minnesota. It's a recently fledged albino black-capped chickadee! If you look closely at the photo, you can almost see a hint of the lightest beige where the black cap and beard should be. It was in her yard on June 9, 2007 but she has not seen it since.

Thanks, Deb, for taking such a great shot of this unusual bird.

That cotton ball really could not be any cuter.

There is definitely a subtle beige where the cap and bib should be, as well as along the flight feathers. Apparently the albinism affects the bill, too.

That is just a fantastic photo!
Too bad that it's going to stick out like a sore thumb.
