what bird is this ?

It has a brownish body and its head is white and black stripes . it appeared in our backyard and whenever my dad tried to catch it to see what bird it was but it would only run away really fast. It didn't try to fly away until my dad started chasing after him , then he finally flew but only like about 5 ft off the ground. We are really curious about this bird that is chilling in our backyard so if you know what type it is that would be thankful!
