Subject: [obol] Albanistic Western Bluebird in Linn County near Crabtree
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.



Good birding,

Jeff
