This bird appears to have a mottled, but structured pattern of black and white, perhaps gray on the back. It has a white throat, and yellow patches on the shoulders. Beak is small in circumference and dark, medium length.

hi, I'm sorry no one has commented on your bird. I don't know what it is either but I can off you a a few websites where you may look for some answers yourself.
AllAboutBirds.org, imnh.isu.edu/digitalatlas/bio/birds/main/ident/bvk1.htm. These two are the easiest to use in my opinion there is also WhatBird but I haven't had a lot of luck with it, it almost always gives me the wrong bird. You can also type the description of the bird into your search bar and see what comes up
