We have observed this redpoll at our home outside of Boulder Junction yesterday and today (March 18 & 19, 2022). We are wondering if it is a partial albino, some other plumage irregularity or could it represent hybridization with some other species, perhaps a rosy finch. We recognize that you may not be answer definitively and that the pictures are not ideal.

Great find! Actually, this condition is called leucism. It’s basically albinism but it’s only a partial loss of pigmentation. And your photos are great!
