What the heck is it?

Photo by BarrytheBirder
Our backyard played host to this odd-looking bird yesterday.   It appeared at the same time as several Grackles but did not join the Grackles for a feeder frenzy.   I have no idea if this is hybrid, a crossbreed, or a bird I've just never seen before.   It was 6-7" long.   Does anyone have an idea what it may be?
Please comment if you wish.

Hi there - Not 100% sure, but I think it may be a juvenile European Starling.
My wife and I saw a bunch of them at Tommy Thompson last year and we did a little research - it was the best we could come up with :)
