Just when we thought the last ruby-throated hummingbird story of the season had crossed our desk, boom, we get another one that's angelic.
A pure white hummer with albinism turned up at the home of Kathy Townsend in Roane County.
Albinism is a congenital disorder that affects the production of melanin, or the natural pigments that give hair, feathers and eyes their color.
Our friends Lee Ann Bowman and Emily Stroud at WBIR-10 created a segment for Live@5@4.

Thank you, Kathy for sharing your story.
