It's hanging out with house sparrows and brown headed cowbirds. It has red eyes, a pink beak, and pink legs in person. I believe it is a true albino.

Its exact location is obscured to keep it safe from anyone trying to go catch it or something because you never know what some people might do, unfortunately. It is in Arnold, Missouri though.

Posted by robertzimmermann over 2 years ago

I'll think over that, I think it might be outside of the scope of the project since it's physical aberration and not colour/pigmentation.
I've found a lot of insects with odd wing venation too.

Posted by silversea_starsong over 2 years ago

We could of course also create a new project for it, let me know what you think :)

Posted by robertzimmermann over 2 years ago

New project is probably best. One that covers physical aberrations like that. I made a new project for plants with unusual numbers of petals, in a similar vein.

Posted by silversea_starsong over 2 years ago

Thx for the chat!
I just created the new project: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/weird-wings
and transferred the respective observations.
Would it still be useful to enhance the observation field "Aberrant type"? Because I would want to differentiate between venation-aberrants and DWV-like anomaly.
Or do you think it's better to also create a new Obs. field?

Posted by robertzimmermann over 2 years ago

New obs field, if you think there's a need for one. Are there enough "types" of venation aberrants to make a field for them?

Posted by silversea_starsong over 2 years ago

I would want to indicate if the anomaly is of this type:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/48493499
or of a venation aberration like these:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/86448466

I think it would not hurt to extend your obs.-field, because as far as I understand it the field doen't have to be project-exclusive, but I could also create a new field with these two options. Like "Wing aberrant type".

Posted by robertzimmermann over 2 years ago

iNaturalist prefers fields being exclusive to specific projects, generally. Else it makes the list of options a bit long.

That first anomaly I wouldn't call an aberration, it's not a genetic condition or mutation, but probably just the wings failing to expand properly, right? That can happen to any individual.

But you've made your own project so I'll leave those classifications to your thoughts.

Posted by silversea_starsong over 2 years ago

True, it's not an aberration, but an anomaly. I correct the respective wordings.
Thanks for the help!

Posted by robertzimmermann over 2 years ago

Is "lutino" being used to refer to xanthochromism? Should observations of xanthic individuals be tagged under 'lutino' or 'other'? @silversea_starsong

Posted by cgbc 2 months ago

I think it was added based on request for birds specifically, but given the pigmentation condition let's say it applies to all xanthic cases for now @cgbc

Posted by silversea_starsong about 2 months ago

@silversea_starsong How about changing the name to "xanthic" from "lutino"? Xanthic is the all-encompassing and formal term, plus the inverse tag "axanthic" already exists. Thanks for your work running this project!
