A Red-winged Blackbird on a feeder is not that odd, but this is the only one I've ever had here. It comes during the Winter, always alone, and has been coming for 3 or 4 years. It's pretty spooky, so the only shots I can get of it are through the window. I'm used to seeing them in flocks, so this one coming every year, always solo, is kinda strange to me!!

Welcome to Whatbird!!

That is kinda odd to see them that close, and letting you take a photo of them.

This blackbird threw me off for a second when I was biking past it. Took me a long glance with my binoculars to realize what it even was!

This may or may not be odd!  This adult eagle looks to be fairly pale - odd or not?

pale eagle (1 of 1)

 

Looks odd to me too. I've never seen one that looked this pale.

This is small potatoes compared to the pale Bald Eagle that Seattle posted above, but when I spotted this leucistic American Goldfinch on the feeder today I thought it was almost solid white at first!! Looks to be a male with very little yellow on it.
