I still haven't identified this bird after 4 weeks

Photo by BarrytheBirder
Does anyone know or have a guess?
I have enlarged this photo in hopes that this much larger view will allow for an identification. It is starting to bother me that I haven't found the name of this bird...particularly when it has such a distinctive appearance. It may be a hybrid or cross-breed and my best guess would be a cross between a Northern Mockingbird and Starling.    Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.   

Please comment if you wish.

Hi Barry - try googling images of juvenile starlings!
Love your website, great photos :)

Yeah, It's a juvenile starling molting into it's adult winter coat. One had me all confused a few years ago.
