Another 'Rare Happening' at the Bird Sanctuary: A White Cardinal Appears! Most Cardinals are flaming red (the male) or honey brown (female). It is unusual for white (or partially white) birds, but predictable among bird populations. I have shared info below from Wikipedia about the 'Leucism' coloring which is not 'Albinism'. The 'Rare Event' is that humans see the birds, as the largest percentage of people do not even notice birds! Of course, I am trying to change that mistake!!! Your photostudy is of the new white cardinal with a bonus reflection to a few years ago when a white headed cardinal came here. You never know what you are going to see today.
A leucistic Rock Pigeon. Both the eyes and legs are still of the normal colour.
Example from Google Index: pictures of leucistic birds:
