G'day all,
Yesterday I observed an leucistic Pink-eared Duck at
the Sewage Ponds. It was a dirty white all over except
for the "ears" which were a faded pink.

How rare are they?
G'day Bob,

I'd say Bob about as rare as this little fellow?

He's the star turn on Tonight's ABC Catalyst show? I
think it's on tonight? check local guides. My friends
at the RSPB and in the USA can't believe it .. mind
you those pomes might be a bit bleary eyed at present
after a four day party eh ~:^D>>>>

Well Done,
John A. Gamblin
