Twice Pied

Do you remember when I saw the robin with partial albinism, two years ago? Well I saw another one today. This one is not so mottled, but definitely has white in the wrong places. I've heard more and more of birds like this. I wonder if there is more of it or we are just noticing more.

Poor little robin, walkin, walkin through Michigan. .
Partial albino robin in our yard a few years ago, mottled, at least half white..

I saw an albino robin here a couple of years ago, but not since.

I wonder if they are treated differently by other robins.
