This morning I spied out at my feeders as I always do only to be surprised by this whitish mockingbird. Is it just me, or does its color look very washed out? Maybe another species that I'm unaware of? Thoughts? I'm thinking it's molting most likely this time of year. Phone camera sucks.

The odd thing is that I really never have those at the feeders.

Leucistic or not, they are the most aggressive little bastards in the yard, i.e. they don't like to share.

True. Bossy, they are.

Do any of you have them at feeders often? Surprisingly enough, I have catbirds very often to feed and make use of my birdbath. Mockingbirds, however, are rare to eat seed for me.

Over here they seem to like suet, so when I see them around I remove the suet immediately. Hate the little bastards and their repertoire of songs, 'cause when they're here I don't see much else.

Odd. I also have suet very closeby, and the bird never give it any attention.
