Bald Eagle Imposter?

A Mighty small Bald Eagle?

While taking photos today, I noticed I wasn't alone. A bird near by was running about looking for its dinner in the same garden. I did a double take, being a bird lover... I didn't recognize this bird. Then it turned and I saw the "Red breast" and realized it was a Robin. Not all white like an Albino, just a white hood. I had to laugh when I though how it looked somewhat like a Bald Eagle. Nice try Robin!

I have found out with the help of "Project Feeder watch" and "For the love of birds", that this Robin has what is referred to as Leucisim. A mutation of Melanin in patches. Not an illness. Thought the YouNews bird lovers would like having this info?
