long blue tail

There were a pair of them that landed in my shell driveway. There were 7-8 inches long from beak to the end of the tail. Head and back were a grey brown with brown streaks that reminded me of sparrow markings, the bill was narrow and blackish, the tail was somewhat long and blue. I did not see the bellies or notice open wings. They were not there long. I assumed they were an immature of something because I had never seen anything like them before in my life. They were thrush-thrasher size maybe jay but no crest on head. Anyone got any idea what they might have been. I live on the eastern shore of Maryland near Chincoteague Bay and it was a July morning after a rain.
