Ken Copenhaver and I came across this unusual chickadee at a feeder yesterday while doing our route for the Eastern Franklin CBC. The owner of the property said it's been around for a while. We watched it for quite a while and it fed and acted just like the other chickadees. We wanted to post to see  what others thought and if anyone had come across coloration such as this before. Is it just a leucistic or partially leucistic bird? Here is the link to two photos of the bird that we got.
