Is this a robin

I have little more than average bird knowledge; I've been seeing this bird in my yard the last couple weeks. Is it a Robin?

It definitely looks to be a leucistic American Robin! What a find for you. You might want to share this with your local Audubon Society.

BTW, a warm welcome to you from those of us on staff here at BirdForum

Leucistic robin as KC says. Nice photo of a spectacular looking bird.
