speckled breast, beak for insects mystery bird

by Samm
(Staten Island NY)

I'm on Staten Island, NY, and thought this might be a migrating bird, as I haven't seen it before. It has a brown and white speckled breast, with a yellow area under its beak, almost like the collar of a turtleneck. the beak is long, like an insect-eater. It seemed to be about the size of a Blue Jay, but it was hard to tell, as it was perched and flew away when I went to get a camera. It was facing me, so I wasn't able to see tail feathers or wings. Any ideas?
