Rare Albino Hummingbird Spotted in Ohio

Featured Posts

FfFfFfFF

White coloration on birds or other animals can be caused by either leucism or albinism. A bird with leucism will still have a normal-colored bill and eyes and some feathers may have normal pigmentation, while birds with albinism, which is more rare, will have all-white feathers along with a pinkish bill and eyes. The pink eyes and bill on the ruby-throated hummingbird the Gutkas spotted would indicate it is albino.

These rare birds are often prized finds for birders and other nature enthusiasts. And while they typically generate a lot of buzz, unusually colored animals do pop up from time to time.

The all-white hummingbird the Gutkas spotted was likely migrating south for the winter. Most ruby-throated hummingbirds that spend summers in their breeding grounds in the northern United States and Canada migrate south to Mexico and Central America for the winter.

I'm pretty sure it's Japanese for "the king's tail" so that's probably what it is. There are a lot of weeaboos in America so it would make sense. 

How can I protect something so perfect without evil?

Isn’t that a katy perry song or sum 

Albino Hummingbird actually sounds like the name of an old country song I'd put on repeat :flutter:

Beautiful animal :saira:
