Funny looking Fieldfare

Fieldfares love to visit my town. There are plenty of food sources in large parks and around te Old Lake. When they arrive I go out for possible accompanying rarities like the sought after Black-throated Thrush. Some years ago I found a large flock of Fieldfares in the English Park with many Bohemian Waxwings. In a separate small group of birds I found an unusual looking thrush which immediately pumped some adrenalin into my veins. After setting up my scope it became obvious that it was a leucistic Fieldfare. I took a record shot of this bird.
