Another mystery

This bird was part of a group we spotted in an apple tree as we were walking the dog along the river. Reminds me of a blue jay but the color is wrong. Considered it might be a juvenile, or molting, or just the poor light (very overcast) making it hard to spot any blue on him?
Nice capture!!

The bill and long tail could be right for a mockingbird. It definitely appears to be molting. Did it sing? They have an interesting complex and repeating song.

I'd guess either melting or young. Like your dof

Great capture. Think I would go along with the Mockingbird. Sort of resembles the Grey Catbird, but think the Mockingbird wins out.

that was my first thought too but looking at photos of juveniles they have that tell-tale stripe in the wings.
