Just saw one in our backyard just now – never thought of this happening to birds, only deer. I took pictures, but couldn’t get a really good picture bc of using a cell phone and distance from the bird.

Ava Johnson says:

Leucism can happen to almost all the creatures in the animal kingdom.

Terri S says:

Currently have one nesting at our home in northwestern Montana.

Greg S says:

Yes, we also have one in northwest Montana (Coram area).

I just had one land in a robin feeding flock in Lawrence, Kansas. It was a gift to see!

Janice Noyes says:

Have had this one in the yard for 2 days now–along with hundreds of regular robins. Thought I was seeing things. How rare is this in coastal North Carolina? I have lived on this property for 20 years–this is my first time seeing this bird.

Heidi Faulkner, Project Assistant says:

Hello Janice, This American Robin has a form of Leucism, which means feathers have no pigement or can appear white. This is a common phenomenon that can be seen in many birds, especially in birds like Rock Pigeons/Rock Doves. Feel free to check out our page on Unusual Birds, which has more information on plummage variations.

We have one residing in our yard in Louisville Kentucky. It is an absolutely beautiful bird. I have taken many pictures!
