Albino sparrows

I haven't added anything to my wildlife blog for a while for one simple reason: nothing particularly interesting has been happening in the garden. Until a few weeks ago, that is.

"What on earth's that?" I asked my boyfriend, having spotted an unusual-looking bird on the feeder.

Whipping out the binoculars (as one does), I saw it was a sparrow with white feathers on its tail. And it's not alone. There seem to be three semi albino sparrows, with differing amounts of white on their plumage. Here's one I managed to photograph yesterday.
