Kinda looks like a TUTI, but...

Recommended Posts

In the field, I thought this bird was a tufted titmouse.  But after I got home and looked closely at the pictures, I began to doubt.  Observed today in eastern Nebraska.  Can you help?

That's actually a leucistic Black-capped Chickadee. Leucism is a condition in which there is partial loss of pigmentation in a bird or animal. In this example, it's on the head.

Nice find!

Snow Bunting?  Female, non-breeding?

EDIT: Sniped.  Make note to ask akandula's teachers to assign more homework.
