White ravens are not albino, but a separate species from black ravens. This is known because their eyes are black. They are larger and more intelligent than their black counterparts.
They are sent by the maesters of the Citadel exclusively to announce the changing of the seasons. White ravens and black ravens are kept in separate rookeries, otherwise they fight each other. The white raven rookery is located in the west tower on the Isle of Ravens, at the Citadel in Oldtown. The white ravens are Archmaester Walgrave's pride, and he wants them to eat him when he dies.
