Large grey bird with black cap

by Lynn
(barrington, Il)

I saw a rather large bird on my deck on the bird bath. It was darkish grey, almost charcoal, with a lighter underside. It had a very slim beak, and a black cap on its head. It was larger than a cardinal or robin, although it is very cold here (Barrington, Il) and was probably puffed up because of the temperature! It was beautiful! Can you help me?
