This fascinating bird is a leucistic hummingbird. These birds have white or mostly white feathers, but (unlike a true albino) have normally pigmented (dark) eyes, feet, and bill. Mr. Tom Sylvest called me when he found this bird in his yard on 09/23/2006. We all came to a consensus that this one is probably an immature male Ruby-throated hummingbird.
