I've learned about leucistic markings on this list and yesterday had my first example, and it was eerie to find one among many fluttering goldfinches at the feeder with a round white crown, like a halo.

The white-throated sparrow with the white crown is still at my feeder,
mostly at dawn and dusk,. Happy to give directions off the list serve
to anyone interested in seeing him, now that the tree that fell on my
house in the storm is out of the way!
