In early April, Greg and Susan Mason of Clear Spring spotted this robin in their backyard. Although at first they thought it might be an albino, the Masons realized that there is still coloring on the breast. Greg said he had to purchase a new Cannon digital camera just so he could capture the bird for the photo. They sent a photo off to Cornell University experts who confirmed it isn't albino, but the coloring is rare. Even though it doesn't look like the rest of the birds, `the robin seems to be content and the Masons suspect its a female and is building a nest. "She acts like a regular robin," Susan said.
