We are stumped

Bird at our feeder. It is big, about the size of a fat dove. The breast is yellow. A black triangle at the beak. The rest is a brownish-gray, almost strip like. Beak is longer than most. Any ideas?

I've seen a flicker eat dogwood berries as well. Only once in fall of 2013.

You say it has a triangle at the beak, do you mean a bib? If it is similar to a black tie with a "v" it would be a Northern Flicker but they eat ants and visit suet feeders.
