If it's albino, its eyes will be red or pink. On the other hand, pale-feathered birds with normally colored eyes have a condition known as leucism. Unlike albino birds, which completely lack the natural pigment known as melanin, leucistic birds produce melanin but can't deposit it into their feathers. Some may even have partial leucism, resulting in a “pied” appearance.
