Robin with white spots

A robin keeps stopping by and it has white spots on it and appears to have white spots on it's head also, i haven't been able to get a photo of it. I'm wondering if it's something i should be concerned about? If it's a desease or something?

Thanks.

Probably just a plumage abnormality of a fairly common type. Here's an extreme example--
