Help with bird ID

Hi everyone, I have this bird coming to my feeder every day and i just can't figure out what it is. It is a very basic looking gray bird. I'm in Georgia, any ideas on what it is?

Maybe a female brown headed cow bird?

Wow, you are Right! I didnt realize the females looked like this but i just looked it up! Thank you so much! We have alot of brown headed cowbirds so this makes sense.

Not sure you knew this but cow birds lay their eggs in other birds nests and the other bird ends up raising their young.

Yes, vinmarks. Sadly, they are partly responsible for the decline of the woodthrush for this reason. 🙁
