“Just as a matter of interest I thought I’d send you this photo that I took of an unusually marked magpie in a garden in Jindabyne NSW last week.

Not bad camouflage for the snow country!”

For a little more information on Leucistic Magpies see this article from the WA Museum : http://museum.wa.gov.au/explore/articles/grey-magpie

Leucism occurs in many other species as well (https://www.avianreport.com/bird-leucism/).  For instance, this Yellow-throated Scrubwren, photogrpahped by Colette Livermore at Palm Grove Ourimbah Landcare.
