Small bird, mostly white with grayish/brown wings. Appears to be some yellow/orange under the wing towards the tail. Seen near a gas station in North Richland Hills, Texas on April 1, 2012. Thought it might be a juvenile mockingbird, but seemed a little small and not enough grey coloring - plus beak seemed a little small too.
