While at a 'boneseeding' (Chrysanthemoides monilifera ssp. monilifera) day
at the You Yangs Regional Park west of Melbourne on Saturday, another birdo
alerted our group to an 'albino' Superb Fairty-wren' on the northern edge
of the park.

Upon closer inspection we could see a lemony-yellow to pale white bird
'bouncing' along the ground amongst Acacia scrub.  A fascinating site and
the first I have seen.

The chap who spotted it had apparently been going to this spot for several
weeks just to see this particular bird.
