I am asking if anyone can shed light on this bird's markings. I believe it to be a Leucistic Steller's Jay.
The bird can be found easily next to the office just before the chair lift. Take some offerings and you'll find the flock. Also present are a few Gray Jays.
leucistic |luːˈsɪstɪk| adjective Zoology
(of an animal) having whitish fur, plumage, or skin due to a lack of pigment.
|Steller's Jay (possibly Leucisitic)|
Magnifique cet oiseau!ReplyDelete
John, great capture! I think you are right!ReplyDelete
The bird is indeed Leusistic as confirmed by numerous birders far more experienced than me.ReplyDelete
