Leucocystic and Melanistic Birds

1850 - 1922

19 mounted specimens of 8 species.

Some from the area around Oldham but some with no locations.

Interesting pigmented variations showing atypical colouration. Includes house sparrow, goldfinch, starling, whitethroat, chiffchaff, dunnock and meadow pippit

The fact that many of these specimens have no locations indicates their curiosity value.
