A White Sparrow

I've never seen a white sparrow either. He's a pretty thing. Ive been meaning to post about the finches who visit out feeder. They brighten my day.

White sparrows exist to make beginning birders (even more) humble. I mean, what the heck?

Wow, I have never seen one like that. Wonder what the other sparows think of him. He is like a ghost bird.
