It's a sparrow with lighter-coloured feathers, the other birds around it are sparrows, aprt from the colouring, it's the same. To confirm, listen for "chip chip" od its song.

I don't know where you live. This looks like a sparrow but I can't see the beak well it could be a finch. I would say it is a partial or an albino. You can call your local Audubon Society and send them your pic. They will want to know if you, indeed, do have an albino sparrow.
