Special Sighting: "Leucistic" (Albino) Hummingbirds

"Leucistic" Hummingbirds, Albino hummingbirds are extremely rare -- less than a hundred sightings have been reported in the Americas; most of which involves "partial albinos" or "leucistic" hummingbirds and only a small percentage of the sightings involved "true albinos."Leucistic / Partial Albino Hummingbirds: The more common form of albinism. Local areas of the hummingbird's body, such as certain feathers, are lacking the pigment melanin. The color of the plumage may range from pure white, buffy, tan or greyish. Like normal-colored hummingbirds, leucistic forms have black eyes, legs and bills.
