acts like a hummingbird

A bird was in my backyard, Chicago, where I feed birds. This bird was fluttering like a hummingbird but it was too large and not the one hummingbird that is in my area. It seemed to have a mask, was small and dark except for his breast which was light in color. Anyone know what it might be?
