Albino Hummingbird at the Feeder

This vido shows an albino hummingbird feeding at a feeder.  Albino hummingbirds are not a sperate species of hummingbird and are extremely rare.  Since it is unlikely that many of us will personally have the opportunity to view this for ourselves, I thought I would share this video with you. 

Here is some additional information about the albino hummingbird for you to discover.  It is the type of information that my mom would have enjoyed discovering.  I wish she were here to enjoy it along with all of you.  Please let me know what you think about the information you discover here.  I look forward to receiving your comments.

The albinism is of a hummingbird caused by a genetic change that prevents the formation of dark-colored pigment in feathers. TThere are varying degrees of albinism.
Typically, albino hummingbirds don’t live as long as other species of hummingbirds, because they often have poor eyesight and more brittle feathers then other hummingbirds and this causes them to have a reduced flying ability.
