I have noticed a male robin in my backyard May 2023 with both legs similar whitish, thicker looking legs, not like a normal Robin that has the dark gray thin legs. Sometimes this robin holds up one of his legs and stands only on one, but he can hop around like normal. He looks healthy, but I have noticed that he seems to be a tamer (more quiet) disposition and avoids conflict with other male robins.
