Rare Albino Swallow in Chandria
The swallow has not yet been photographed by anyone in the village, although they have tried, the bird moves too fast to be captured on film. The odds of an albino swallow are 1:18,000.
In Chandria village, swallows are held to be sacred and their nests are never disturbed by the villagers because they bring in the springtime, said one resident.
