Unidentified Bird in Northern Minnesota

Unidentified Bird in Northern Minnesota

This bird came to my feeder in north central Minnesota. It was really had to get a picture as it was always moving, but I did manage to get this photo through the window. It was just slightly smaller than a Bluejay, very dark with a lot of speckling and striping around the eye. Any help identifying would be greatly appreciated.

I now think it could be a juvenile Red Winged Blackbird.
