Pure White Bird

by Maureen
(Woodstock, Ontario)

I live in Southwestern Ontario near Woodstock. We had a pure white bird at our bird feeder this morning. It was a little bigger than a finch. I have never seen it before. Just wondered what kind of bird it is or could it be an albino bird.

Thanks, Maureen, I wonder if you could get a picture of the bird next time it comes to your bird-feeder - we would love to see it, and perhaps one of our readers could identify it.

Pure white bird 10 miles east of Woodstock today
by: Marie Marie Anonymous

On my lawn, a little smaller than a hen, smooth feathers, legs shorter than a hen. Let me walk right up to it. Then if flew straight up almost height of tree, then flew over field and over house.

Pure White Bird
by: Keith Holloway

This is second time I have seen this bird. Pure White. It was about the size of the largest Sparrow, but a little more streamlined. Tried to get a picture, but had dead batteries. Hopefully there will be another chance

Pure white bird

I had a pure white bird at the feeder with a flock of rosey and yellow finches - first time I have ever seen that. On Good Friday no less. Is it an albino? Live in Baysville, Ontario.

Albino Finch? Woodstock Ontario
by: Alice

Interesting reading this morning, as I also had what appears to be an Albino Finch at the feeder this morning. In the N4T 1V2 neigbourhood. Wondering where the other location in Woodstock was?

Albino Bird
by: Peter D L

Any species of bird can have individuals that are Albino - I have seen albino Sparrows and an albino Finch in with a flock of regular finches. I once saw an albino Peacock at a zoo as well, so any type of bird can show up as an albino now and again.
