Had my first FOS Dark Eyed Junco in the yard this past weekend (both days), 
west Knox County, Tennessee.  Saturday a leucistic Carolina Chickadee was 
coming to the feeder.  Its tail was white and it had a very light gray mantle.  
Tried to get a better look but it was feeding typical chickadee style... eat 
and run.  It was with 3 others.  This is the second leucistic chickadee I've 
had.  The first was in November 2006 when "Whitey" visited my feeders for a 
couple of weeks.  Whitey didn't have a white tail, however.  He/she had 
extensive white feathering on its mantle and a splotchy looking cap.  This 
second one is even more striking in appearance.
