There's a young albanistic Western Bluebird, Sialia mexicanus, on the Thackaberry Farm near Crabtree, Linn County, Oregon, with six of normal pigment. Air conditions are suboptimal for photography, but there are some here:
Also of interest was a Black Phoebe along Beaver Creek. The phoebe was there yesterday, the first I've seen on this farm. They have been coming closer, and were present next door all summer. For a few years they have resided nearby, at the log ponds on Weyerhaeuser property along Brewster Road at Griggs.
