Snowflake is Still Here
Snowflake the leucistic female dark-eyed junco was on the deck rail yesterday, eating suet-dough bits. It was so cold that she kept one foot or the other tucked in her belly feathers.
She is such a beautiful bird.
I hope she makes it back again next year. It'll be interesting to see if she continues to get whiter with age. For any new BOTB readers, here is Snowflake's story.
Here's hoping the sharpie over on Zick's blog does not come to BOTB hunting some junco white meat.
