Brown bird with yellow ring around the neck

by Michele
(Hastings, MN)

I live in Hastings, MN and noticed that a brownish bird with some cream streaks in it had a bright yellow ring around it's neck. It is a little bigger than a sparrow and seems to love the grape jelly I have out for the orioles. I have looked in all my bird books but cannot find anything close to it. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you. M
