Thats very interesting Keioth
These are rare Keith,they dont usually survive because their weaker than the normal blackbirds and prone to being attacked by other predators ,all the twitchers will be round your house ha.I've never seen one thanks for sending it in.
Took some pics of an albino tree sparrow a couple of years ago in my garden. It seemed to mix with the other small birds alright.
Good photo, Keith.
Well that is a first....never seen that before...well done Keith....cheers!!
Amazing but I don't suppose it will survive very long
Saw one many years ago in Skelmersdale, they are far from common.
Good photo Keith, you were very lucky to see that, i see you're encouraging it to stay with a bit of bread. Unfortunately bread has no nutritional value to birds it just helps them to feel full. The worst time to feed birds bread is when they are feeding their young as the young birds can choke on it. The last Albino blackbird i heard of one was in and around Chorley Grammar School grounds that must be 50 years ago at least.
Sadly this bird is no more
July and our little bird is still going strong she has had two chicks but they were black.
