After Kate Scannell read Elizabeth's email below, Kate responded: "*A fun
aside.....Some time in the late seventies I became friends with Laimons
Osis, who is my neighbor. On a walk by myself I had seen an "albino" robin
in the exact same place that was reported in *[Elizabeth's] *email this
morning. Not knowing what it was I went to Laimons, who had seen it also,
and we have been friends ever since. ......Bird territories.........*"
Leucistic birds are curious and interesting to see! Could leucistic robins
have been nesting in the Beaver Creek area for so long? See picture of
leucistic American Robin as part of "*Podcast [and transcript]; Why Is This
Bird Half-White? Unusual genetic mutations can eliminate color in a
bird's feathers—in patches, or even across its entire body*." By

Here are some not great photos of the Leucistic Robin on N Beaver Creek
road, Seal Rock. Found by Evan Hayduk about a week ago. Re-found by Check
Philo a few days ago. I looked for it three times and it finally appeared
today. It’s next to Bunnel creek which looks more like a very full ditch.
It’s about 2 to 2.5 miles down N. Beaver creek rd. Interesting find!
