|This Leucistic Dark-eyed Junco was seen in a yard in Hancock, Maine for only 1 day. It did not hang out with other juncos, but came and went several times.|

This is a nice bird captured with beautiful clarity and details. Nice perch with natural tone in the frame.
Thanks and kind regards.

It is a thrill to see rare birds such as this in the wild. Some people live their entire lives without ever viewing a leucistic or true albino creature of any kind. You have done a fine job of photographing this leucistic darkeyed Junco. Focus is sharp and colors are natural and not oversaturated.
I was fortunate to have had a leucistic or as some people called it (partial albino) Red-tailed Hawk visit our area for five years in a row. If you care to view it check out this link.
