It kinda reminds me of an albino Robin. Any ideas?

You're right! Well nearly, it isn't a pure albino though not far off; technically it counts as leucistic or partial albino as some non-white plumage features are present.

Thanks Resin. My neighbor was visiting and as he was leaving noticed the bird on the lawn and excitedly exclaimed, "the bird is a sign!" I looked up a bit about this kinda thing and found this site: http://www.animaldreaming.com/animals/white-animals/white-animals-of-prophecy
If it is a good sign, great. Hopefully not a bad omen.

Thanks for the ID.
