This handsome chap has been in my garden for a couple of years but has proved very difficult to photograph until the other day when he posed outside my (dirty) window.  Although there are plenty of photographs on the net of leucistic blackbirds, I have not found many from Australia. Even if there are other photographs of similar plumage patterns, I though he was worth a picture.  There is some previous discussion of blackbirds with similar plumage on the chatline in 2005 (seach for Pinto).  This bird has bred in our garden but unfortunately so did the Pied Currawongs which made meals for its young of the Blackbird nestlings.
