Thanks for sharing that information, Brodie. Through the years the "aberrant plumaged" individuals have been reported occasionally on OBOL. While striking and surprising to see, I would say their level of rareness is exaggerated in the BNA account. I reported one in 2002 that I viewed in Port Angeles, Washington. More recently (10 years ago?) excellent photos were posted by a friend on Facebook from the mid-Willamette Valley or Cascades foothills and noted on OBOL.
