A partly albino Wilson's Warbler (Wilsonia pusilla)

Yong, Wang; Finch, Deborah M. 1997. A partly albino Wilson's Warbler (Wilsonia pusilla). NMOS Bulletin. 25(1): 1-2.

On 20 September 1995 at 11:15 MST, during routine mist-netting for a study investigating the use of the middle Rio Grande riparian habitat by migratory land birds at Rio Grande Nature Center, Bernalillo County, New Mexico, we were surprised to discover a light yellowish warbler in one of the nets. After careful examination and comparison, the bird was identified as a hatching-year (by incomplete skull ossification) Wilson's Warbler with albino plumage. The sex was not determined.
