Attention bird watchers – white robin!

A white robin has been spotted in Peterborough. 

MyKawartha.com reported, "We could not believe what we were seeing. It was indeed a white robin! What a magnificent sight it was. It looked like any other robin, with its red chest, except everything else on this bird was white."

While some might think this robin is albino, it's not completely white with red eyes. The more accurate term would be leucistic. 

Keep an eye out for this unique bird!
