no picture. a large flock of red-winged blackbirds and grackles were feeding in our back yard. We noticed a white bird (some feathers with a little color) could this be an albino red-winged blackbird. have never seen this before. Thank you.

it may have been too far away, but a true albino does not have pigment, so it,s eyes, beak,legs would be pink or red. however, this could have been a blackbird whose feather color genes had gotten a little different in the dna and so couldn,t make the color. as you said, it had a little color so the second one is my guess.
