Tree Swallow

This pure white Tree Swallow was recently found at the Trevelylin Farm in New Haven following a mower around as it was cutting a field. Even without its normal field marks, this bird is recognizable as a Tree Swallow from its body shape. Unlike the several white leucistic birds we have posted pictures of in the past that had at least some normal pigmentation, this bird is a true albino. The complete lack of pigmentation leaves the bill and legs pink, and the eyes red.
