This is a very rare sighting in that it is a leucistic bird (partial albino). It's most likely a young female Ruby-throated Hummingbird. An albino would have a pink bill and red/pink eyes. Great Bird!!!
Can someone identify this HB...white wings and quite large in comparison to the ruby throated HB who are here annually. Not a great picture..sorry
Passed the photo to Fred Bassett and he confirms it as a female Ruby-throated and added that the reason it looks larger is that all white birds are perceived to be larger than a similar dark colored bird of the same size.
