Thanks William. Interesting that you found another - I wonder if it's the same one, or a different one. Leucistic isn't so rare that there couldn't be another, but it could be on the move north this time of year.

I've spotted the same bird again last month, as it returned to the same park, even the same TREE, as last year - it was around here for about a month, and I last photographed it on Feb 8th

Yours may have been a different bird if it was showing more yellow - you can see the bird I photographed has very little yellow around the tail, and just hints of it on the sides and neck.
