Noticed an unusual bird on the feeder. Looks like a song sparrow to me but maybe albino?

Hi, I believe that this bird is leucistic. Leucism is a partial loss of pigments in an animal, resulting in white, or lighter-colored feathers(in the case of a bird). It is basically partial albinism.

Yes, I agree, it is leucistic.
