White headed black bird
- We have a white headed blackbird in our yard here in the Covelo area.
He/she also has alot of white underneath her wings. Looks like a
minature bald eagle on first glance. She hangs out with a flock and
talks the talk. Anyone else ever see such a variation/mutation? Viviana

I'm a "regular lurker" of Mendobirds living in Albion. In the Ft.
Bragg Safeway parking lot I regularly see a blackbird with whiteish
wings and tail feathers. Robert Keiffer was kind enough to educate
me on the likely cause. Leucism.
