  Hi all,

  Adding to the discussion about partially white or albino birds I have
  seen a variety of species with these features. Around Wangaratta I
  have seen Blackbirds with white in their plumage and a whitish Willie
  Wagtail with the black areas a milk coffee colour. At Wodonga an
  unusual sighting was a leucistic Pink-eared Duck. The bird was nearly
  white except for the black areas where a pale fawn.

  At Chiltern I have also seen a leucistic Pink-eared Duck. It was a
  very pale fawn colour and I believe was seen in the area by other
  observers as well.
