Well thanks anyway, guess we'll both be watching ours closely. Mine has white patches as well, this picture shows him a couple weeks ago and you can see the white on his wings. One of the female Bronze also has white flights and the male Bronze has white tips on a couple of his flights. Did you see any unexpected white feathers that might mean your male is carrying something like WE, or Pied genes? Around here everybody wanted IB's this year, nobody really wanted BS.
