Leucistic Tui

No sign today of the leucistic tui seen at the beginning of the month regularly visiting our sugar feeder in the garden. Definitely not an albino as you can see by the dark eyes.

I photographed this thought to be a leucistic variable oystercatcher in the Kaipara on December 29th 2016. However it may be an albino as on closer viewing of my photo their is a hint of red in those eyes.
