Cardinal with white coloring.
I spotted a white cardinal in my backyard, with the dozens of other Cardinals. Dentsville, Maryland. 08-23-18. I then after found a feather belonging to it. Gray, white with red tips.
I spotted a white carnival at my feeder today. 12/15/18. Besutiful.

I spotted a white Cardinal in my yard today, most amazing bird I have ever seen.
It started again today. For the 3rd year in a row, a little white Cardinal visits my house and pecks on my window glass. It’s so strange! It’s at various 1st floor windows and different times of day, but usually later mornings. It pecks for less than 5 minutes and then gone till the next day. I would enjoy it much more if I could understand what’s going on. Anyone have knowledge or a good guess? Thanks. (I’m in Wabash, Indiana)
We saw a white cardinal in Kennesaw National Park yesterday (3/1/2019) in Marietta, GA. It was beautiful.
Saw a white cardinal at the feeder today, have seen it in December also. Cincinnati ohio.
I just had a white cardinal land on my trellis and then to t he fence. I never knew, but it makes sense. Albino cardinals? Spartanburg, SC
Hi Ronna, Albinism is a genetic mutation that prevents the production of melanin, it is not specific to any one species. You can learn more about color variations in birds on our Unusual Birds page: https://feederwatch.org/learn/unusual-birds/#color-variants
Never heard of this before, but we just had a white cardinal perch in front of our picture window and stare at us for a few minutes. Very pretty, Commack, NY

I dreamt about white cardinals last night. In my dream, i felt amazed. Reading these posts, I am amazed…
Amazing pictures of white cardinals! I heard about them on the radio on “Science Friday”. So I looked them up on line. They’re so beautiful! – Placerville,
I spotted a pure white cardinal in my backyard with a red mate very beautiful. Tecumseh, OK
I just saw a cardinal that was very bright red, and had some bright yellow feathers on its lower back. I didn’t have my binoculars, but I’m certain it was a cardinal; it was hanging out with several other, normal colored, cardinals. Very odd!
