Looked like a robin but wasn't


(Minnesota)

First time I've seen it. Thought it was a robin, but had very light orangey breast; light brown on top & head but had small white markings in the brown. Two distinct white stripes on the sides of its head, one just over, the other under its eye. Thought it might be some kind of oriole but for the white on its head. It flew up to our feeders, sat for a minute or so then flew away. No picture. :(
