pigeon sized bird with a curved bill

(Whitby, Ontario, Canada)

The bird was scene in Banff Provincial park in Alberta. It was walking on a sidewalk near the Banff Convention Centre. The upper bill is long but the lower bill is shorter. The only birds I've bene able to find like that are found in Hawaii, but they are colourful. This one was just grey, black and white.
