As most of my friends and family know, I have gotten into feeding the birds in our new home here in Scio. I joined Project Feeder Watch with Cornell Lab of Ornithology back in November, and have been reporting my birds weekly for their study. In the process of watching and feeding, I kept having this one bird visit the feeder. It would come in, eat quickly and disappear before I could pull out the binoculars or capture it with the camera. I finally got it after 3 weeks of trying and have determined it is an Albino Black Capped Chickadee.
One of the best parts of watching the birds is having new species come to the feeder. This one was the highlight of my week. Since then I have had several pretty and interesting birds come to feed. I will be posting occasionally those that have me a “twitter”.
