Brewer's Blackbird leucistic red eyes 2019-03-09 ©Kevin S Lucas

Brewer's Blackbird (leucistic) Euphagus cyanocephalus

 

This Brewer's Blackbird appears leucistic -- the white feathers on its head. It has a lighter than normal, pinkish color bill. But it also has red eyes, something I've never seen in a leucistic bird that wasn't a complete albino. Strange. I was glad my digiscoped photos were able to catch the eye color for both eyes.

My original photos have embedded GPS time/date/location -- proving when & where I took the photos. I would never falsify a checklist, nor info under my photos, and never have done so. That would be the antithesis of my bird watching.

 

Please always consider the sensitivity of birds, nearby humans, and the environment.

 

Since bird listing is dominated by white males, it's sadly unsurprising that abusive behavior by them is accepted by other bird watchers.
