Showcase your morphs, hybrids, intergrades and mutants


Recommended Posts

They may not count as an additional species on your life list but you can still show them off here. I do ask that you provide the id and at least the County and State where you found your oddballs for this thread. I did look for any old categories on this subject and didn't find any. If I missed it let me know by providing a link. This should be a fun. Great Blue Heron (White Form) Monroe County, FL. Old and new photos welcome!

Here's a thread on hybrids: 

Here's one on leucistic and melanistic birds:

 

Why don’t we just use this topic, because it covers everything? If we have this, those other topics don’t need to be dug up.

Yes, maybe really common morphs or other forms, such as normal gray Great Blue Herons, aren't needed in this thread.  Maybe not light-morph western Red-tailed Hawks.  Or maybe it's OK if people can cover both or all the morphs for comparison.

Why don’t you post your “Brewer’s Duck”? That would be cool to see.

I'm going through my eBird photos from oldest to newest an the Brewer's Duck is newer than the intersex Mall.

So no WTSP morphs?

As far as I know, almost every adult White-throated is one or the other morph--except your "one or the other" photo, which was interesting.  And they're equally common.  I don't see a point to being able to post any photo of a White-throated adult in this thread.  Maybe it should just be rare morphs and aberrant plumages.  But what do other people think?
