Description

This is the second time we have seen the white headed Robin. The first time was Jan 7, 2014.

The first photo is a cropped from an image my husband took Feb 3, 2014 at 11:53 am.

The second photo is a cropped image I took Feb 3, 2014 at 8:35 am, showing this white headed robin in a group of robins and bluebirds.

So the bird was seen twice in one day.

We have lived in this house 13 years and this is the first white headed robin we have ever seen.

I have been participating in the feeder watch for most of the 13 years we have lived in this house.

    We had one move into our area of Chelsea in NYC. Beautiful singing and oddly at this time of year.

    Saw a photo of this bird yesterday taken on March 14, 2018 in Portvue, PA (approx. 13 mi. SSE of Pgh.). I was thinking It was a contrived image until I read several posts on this website, sent from people living in this general region, relating similar sightings.

    I white-headed Robin was on my doorstep this morning 4/16/18 in Wisconsin. I remember seeing one last year too.

    Had a white headed robin in my backyard April 15, 2018. Never knew they existed. It appeared the other robin’s were attempting to chase it away. Awesome!

    I just saw one in my backyard in Somers, CT. He/she had a white head, red breast and striped wings, Very striking bird but I can see why they make easier prey for predators.

    There are two robins in my yard. One is of normal colors and the other has a few white areas on its head. At first I thought the white spots were Apple blossoms stuck to its head as the flowering Apple tree in the yard was in full bloom. However I saw it again a few days ago and could see it was definitely part of its coloration.
    Amazing! I have never seen it’s like!
