IBLE Community,

I believe the bird in the attached photos is a leucistic female red-winged blackbird. What do you all think?  Found this last Friday at Camas WMA in the east shelterbelt.  It did not sing and was generally not shy.  I was able to observe the bird for as long as I wanted, which was about 30 minutes. 

Curious to hear opinions.  Thanks everyone!
