Bird id help, please!

(Alberta, Canada)

A bird hit my window a while ago, and lay stunned on the sidewalk. I watched it until it flew away, and tried to identify it with my Alberta bird book. I am in central Alberta.

It had a fairly long (at least 1 inch) black beak, black eyes, overall gray with white bars on the underside of the wings, and a pale yellow belly. When it righted itself and flew away, I saw a yellow stripe down the centre of the tail. It might have been a youngster. A little smaller than a robin, maybe 6 inches long.

Sorry, I was so busy trying to identify it that I didn't take a picture. It is a bird I have never seen before.

Any help would be appreciated!
