Among a small flock of house finches at the feeder, there was a female with a white head and white primary feathers. All other plumage coloration appeared normal. This bird appeared only once during my Feeder Watch sessions this week.

Texas Bird Family says:

That finch is leucistic. Meaning that some or all of the feathers lack pigment.
