Description

I saw this Blue Jay on February 2, 2018. I was startled to see the white head on this blue jay. The anomalous bird was sitting in a tree by the bird feeder, and a regularly colored blue jay was on a branch nearby to provide me with contrast. I only have one photo, but I have some video of this bird as well. However, your site does not take video submissions. If you would like that, please contact me and provide information on how to submit it.

This is called leucism. The white feathers are caused by an absence of pigments in the bird’s body.
