[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Black-capped Chickadee with a white tail was photographed in Northwood, NH. According to Internet information the white tail is sometimes caused by normally colored tail feathers be dropped during a fright molt, growing back in white. The information states that in another molt they will grow back in their normal color. I don't know how accurate that information is.

Hello Debbie,
I love to see images of unusual looking birds such as this Chickadee with an all white tail. This is something you don't often see, so it is always worth trying to get a photo of.
Hope you don't mind, but I noticed a bit of noise so I wanted to see if I could remove it in a WS.
PS. I never did see any young from the Leucistic Red-tailed Hawk. Thanks for asking!
