I can't say for sure, but to me it looks like an unusually patterned Carolina Chickadee.

Certainly looks like a Chickadee until you look at the top of its head. A partial albino perhaps?

Nah mate, just the angle of the head (turned looking up, throat towards us). Perfectly normal stretching Chickadee for me!

I had to take another look at this pic, and now I see it! Bit of an optical illusion for the unwary.
