This afternoon (17 Feb 01) with Brad Bergstrom and his students at St.
Marks NWR we saw this grackle.  A female, it is ~ 40% white.  A weird
looking bird.  I have seen several partial albino grackles, mostly
Boat-tailed, but a couple of Commons too.  Grackles seem to be prone to
this phenomenon.  I read of one somewhere else just this week.

Jim Cavanagh saw this bird a couple of days ago also.  Look for it around
the boat ramp at the East River Pool.
