Return of ZORRO the leucistic black capped chickadee
Image by thelearnedfoot_
Another local birder (who gets credit for first spotting him/her) named the bird Zorro for the black mask.
"Zorro" is a leucistic black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) photographed in the fall of 2009 outside the Nature Center at the Rocky River Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks.
Leucism is relatively unusual in birds. Leucism is caused not by a lack of pigment (as in an albino individual), but by a reduced deposition of pigment in the feather.
Zorro first appeared at a local feeder in the Rocky River Reservation in October 2009. He is a frequent visitor and appears to live with a flock of normal black-capped chickadees. It is not known whether Zorro is male or female. Zorro is difficult to photograph because although not afraid of people, Zorro rarely stays in one spot for very long unlike some of the other black-caps.
