Albino robin

Spotted an albino robin playing with two regular robins on my Dad & brothers farm in Southern Black Hawk county. I was about 100 feet away with these shots...thank goodness for zoom lenses and high digital cropping. Trying to find out how common these are in Iowa. Have so far only found one other sighting in the last several years.
