Can anyone idenify this bird I saw?

8 years ago

Sorry, no photo. I was just sitting in my yard and saw a bird I never saw before. She landed on a rosebush to nibble on aphids. She was larger than a sparrow but smaller than a robin, or maybe as big as a robin, I am not sure. She was a combination of dark gray, almost black, but not quite, and very pale gray, almost white. Her head had wide stripes of the light and dark gray, she was all light gray on her underside, her wings were dark gray with pale grayish/white spots and her back was the dark gray with a light gray band down the center. Such a pretty bird!
