Delaware Views a Snow Bunting

This lovely little white bird landed in my back yard with the Juncos.  First time I ever saw one.
I worked it with my 100-300 and the 35-100 and  still felt the need to crop and paint it.
Kathy you are the first person I thought of when this bird alighted in my back yard.
Need to make a CORRECTION as per my good friend and excellent Birder Kathy.
It is not a Snow Bunting after all, it is a leucistic Dark Eyed Junco, which means a genetic mutation is preventing normal color pigmentation on the feathers.
