New Bird at the Feeder

For three days this bird used our feeder. We live in the St. Louis, Missouri area. Have not been able to identify. Would appreciate any help. My wife thinks it is a pet that got free.

some kind of magpie. Possibly a female or immature of either sex. Hard to see but that's my guess. They're fun little thieves!


Whoops... may also be a gray jay. Again, hard to tell from the picture but the light/darks on the bird are obvious. I'd look both those up and decide for yourself. If you go to Cornell's site they have really great similar birds you can compare to what you've seen.

I am thinking it's an escapee that got free. It looks unusual to be living there.
