Not Your Everyday Song Sparrow!

The bird pictured in the Bucks County Herald membership ad on
February 27, 2014 is a song sparrow!  It doesn’t look like your everyday song sparrow because it has a condition known as leucism (pronounced loo-kism).  Leucism results from a genetic mutation which prevents pigment from being properly deposited in some of the bird’s feathers.  White patches, pale overall plumage or overall white plumage are some of the ways this condition manifests.  Birds with white patches or sections are said to be “pied” or “piebald”.  BCAS has been receiving an increasing number of reports of these abnormally pigmented birds including cardinals, juncos and red-tailed hawks.  According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology this is a rare condition, occurring in about 3 of every 10,000 birds or 0.03%.  At this point we are unsure as to whether the increased reports are due to an increase in the number of people watching and reporting birds or to some other factor.  We’ve asked Cornell to look into it!  Leucism occurs in other animals as well, including dogs, cats, horses, cows, snakes and white-tailed deer. A note of thanks to Hal Boyer who sent us the photo of this really interesting bird!
