I cannot remember the reference I was given to this occurring when I got very 
excited some 18 years ago about a honeyeater with yellow feet. Most nestlings 
loose the yellow soles at fledging but a few retain this and even have yellow 
feet (toes). 

I thought I had a new species when I saw a little brown honeyeater with bright 
yellow feet in the garden.
