I live in Dexter OR. I was able to get several photos in my back yard. Looked like a Varied Thrush, with visits here. But was stunned that it had white where the orange should have been. very cool.

It is so pretty.

Found this White Morphed Varied Thrush going thru the alder chips in my our garden. It’s feeding is different from the orange variety, seems a little more aggressive in its digging for bugs. Only the one as far as we can tell. Does not feed or care about other birds. Very skittish

Oh yes, we live in Port Angele, Washington
