This is a leucistic bird. Is the size about right for a dark-eyed junco?

What a treasured photo! I would love to see something like this in my lifetime.

I googled white sparrow and saw a few pics posted but a white sparrow is certainly rare. Found one pic of a baby white sparrow and the site said it had normal colored parents.

What an exciting capture!
If the eyes were very red, I'd go with albinism, but I think it is likely leucistic.
Great shot of this unique-looking bird!

I browsed AllAboutBirds.org and didn't find any species that fits. I think ChrisA must be right -- a color variant. Great bird-spotting and great capture.

It might be an albino, but the dark feathers on its head suggest that it is leucistic, a color variant. Leucistic animals are white, partly white, or overall pale in color but without the pink eyes of an albino, when that is not the normal coloration for the species. The white tigers of Sigfried and Roy fame are leucistic. Good closeup shot, Rich!

The eyes up close on my computer show a little pink and the feet are pink.

I never have. Great catch! It has black eyes. Do I understand that that means it is not albino, just a white "variant"?
