HI ALL: From eBird:
McKay's Bunting (Plectrophenax hyperboreus) (1) - Reported Jan 12, 2018 14:57 by Jon. Anderson - Road 14 NE 1 mi E of Road O NE, Douglas, Washington - Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=47.81551,-119.408= 342&ll=47.81551,-119.408342 - Checklist: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S41857294 - Comments: "All white head, no brown tones at all, gray and white streaking on back, darker bill. Very different plumage than all adjacent Snow Buntings, with the striking whiteness. Much like the adult breeding female shown in Sibley, although this would admittedly be quite early. All 3 observers saw this bird at different times and all gave similar description."
