White Sparrow

By nanpantanman
Not an Albino but a Leucistic bird (in which some or all of the plumage is white but eye pigments are unaffected). One of a brood of three or four on the roof of a friends house.

Not a perfect shot but the best I could get standing on a chair and leaning out of a skylight while the birds hopped around.

It's a decent shot of a rare specimen........and given the circumstances it's exceptional. The lengths we go to for a picture WinkWinkWink. Well done
