Leucistic or weird molt

Recommended Posts

I know that young Brown-headed Cowbirds go through a weird looking period when they molt into adult plumage, but I'm not sure if that's what I am seeing here. The bird looks leucistic to me, but the possibility of that molt thing is nagging at me. Anyone care to comment on the cowbird on the left?

I didn't think they molted this early, but I haven't memorized all the molt cycles mentioned in my field guides, and don't plan to, so I thought I would ask here. Thanks for the feedback.
