Leucistic and full to partially albinistic birds

Over time, I've been fortunate to find quite a few birds in pale, washed out, white or partially white plumage. The dilution of coloration is call Leucism which differs from albinism. I'll be going back and looking through my slides and adding to this list as I've seen many pale species from shorebirds to vultures. I've seen more ducks than any other type with leucistic tendencies but that may be because they are more obvious. Untill recently, I'd never seen a leucistic bird that I could ID as a male. (See recently added melinistic and dilute male Mallard photos plus a leucistic Least Sandpiper)
