Maryland - New Bird

I am sorry not to have a picture, but I saw this bird about the size of a LARGE pigeon at the bird bath. The colorings were more like a female Cardinal but with a long, narrow beak. I am pretty familiar about the birds in this area but this one has me stumped. I can't even find it in my books. Thanks.

This sounds exactly like what I saw! At first I thought it was a fat female cardinal but it is just too big like you said the size of a pigeon. I would love to know what this bird is called! They come around often I will try and get a picture next time I see one.
