Guess Who Came to Dinner


Albino Sparrow, originally uploaded by Roberta Warshaw.
I could not believe it! An albino sparrow at my bird feeder!

I just learned from an online friend that this bird is not an albino, but has a condition called leucism. You can read more about it here. Thanks Lidia!

Sorry for the not so great picture but he was moving so fast and I had to take the photo through the screen door. Plus since I was indoors, the flash went off.

It was Murphy's law of image taking!

How interesting! I had not heard of that before. It's a very pretty little bird though!
