Can anyone Identify this bird for me?

by Scott
(Stouffville, Ontario, Canada)


I just took this picture this morning (Dec. 15th 2010). The picture was taken in Ontario Canada, about 45 minutes north of Toronto. The bird was about the size of a Blue Jay. I have never seen one of these before on our country property and I am stumped.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!
Scott

There is a picture of a black-capped chickadee on this website: http://www.treknature.com/gallery/North_America/Canada/photo90417.htm. I thought they were similar, maybe someone else will look and think so too.
