Scott Davis, of Gallatin, Tenessee has just had a once in a lifetime encounter with a rare white cardinal, right in his backyard. The lifelong birdwatcher was surprised to see a nearly all-white cardinal, with only very light red feathers on its body, eating food in the 67-year-old retiree’s backyard.

"It's actually the prettiest bird I think I've ever seen," Scott said. "It's an unnatural color. Maybe that's what makes it so pretty. It's just so odd and rare." Despite being an avid bird watcher his whole life, Scott had never seen a white cardinal, and with a stroke of luck, one landed in his backyard. What are the odds.
