New bird in our backyard.

We have a new bird once again this Summer. It is almost as big as a Robin. Has speckled brown and black feathers. At the base of the back where the tail starts is a white slash of color seen only in flight. Has a long dark kind of curved and pointed beak. Have never seen this in Nebraska before. What is this neat bird? We know it's not a Thrasher we had a new pair of those nesting this past Spring. However it is about the same size. Please help me identify this bird.

Might it be an Eastern Towhee? The females have brown & the males have black. Check images on bing.com :-)
