According to an article entitled "Albinism in birds" in Wikipedia, a completely albino bird is the most rare, lacking any pigment in its skin, eyes and feathers. The eyes in this case are pink or red, because blood shows through in the absence of pigment in the irises. The beak, legs, and feet are very pail or white. Completely albino adult birds are very rarely spotted in the wild.

June 28, 2013 We had an all albino robin grown baby in our yard today. For some reason it was having a hard time flying. As soon as I caught it to make sure it was ok the parents started to squawk like crazy. I noticed the pink eyes so it was a true albino. It was grown pretty good but seem to be ok except for not being able to fly too good yet. We noticed that its tail feathers were shorter than maybe they should have been. After checking it out we decided to set it free at the end of the property near the woods. We backed off and heard the parents squawking again. It started to walk into the woods and we saw the mother come down and feed it. Didn't see it fly off but it took cover I guess as it started to rain. I'll keep my eyes open for it.
