Carolina, I was also confused after reading the description, but found out that there *are* white versions of this lovely sparrow, especially bred for pets! So it might be an escapee, or just a naturally occurring rarity :) Either way, what a pretty photo, nice shot!!
i guess it is just white :)
Ah!! So beautiful!
Is this a baby or why it is white?
