Description

We regularly see finches, sparrows, nuthatches and chickadees at our feeders. But recently I saw a flash of white and could not identify this bird. I finally concluded that it is an abnormally colored horse finch. How unusual is this?

Albino House Finch?

Albino house finch?

One reply on “Albino house finch?”

Ava says:

Hello. This bird does indeed have some type of pigmentation condition, but it is more likely leucistic than albino. It might be a House Finch but it could also be a Purple Finch.
There is about a 1 in 30,000 chance that a bird will be albino or leucistic.
Hope this helped!
