Not only is an albino sparrow rare, they are hard to get a good photo of. You have done well to capture this rare treat as good as you have.

Hi Luis,
I understand the confusion, however, if I look at the size of the bill (comparing it with photos of the Passer), and if I also notice that there is not the angle between the forehead and the upper bill insertion that the Passer does have, then I would think this to be Padda oryzivora.
