I observed an albino American Robin today at about 4:30 on the Route 127 Bike Trail, about half way between Ethan Allen Homestead Museum parking lot and Manhattan Drive. 

The bird was fully albino, solid white, no pigment in the feathers at all,  and had dark pink eyes. Apart from being albino, it was acting like a typical robin: running across the lawn and stopping to pluck insects from the grass. I had a good long look at this unusual bird.
