Mystery Bird

Can any of you birders out there help with identifying this bird?
She  (I’m assuming it’s a she) was perched near the feeders today but I didn’t see her eating. She’s really pretty with those black wing patches and dark bill. She’s about the size of a female cowbird, which was what I thought she was at first.

Addendum
Thanks for all the input. “She” is a “he” – a juvenile male Brown-headed Cowbird molting into adult plumage. Those very distinct wing patches certainly had me stumped.
