The ruby-throated hummingbird is the most common hummingbird species in North America, and albinos of this species have pinkish eyes, feet and bills.

Some researchers working with birds say albinism occurs in 17 of 30,000 individuals, or one of 1,764 birds, according to the Missouri Department of Conservation.
