What am I?

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.

Looks like a young Scissor-tail Flycatcher. Incredible birds. We saw one in Tennessee several years ago. We rarely get them here. We also ran into a migrating flock of thousands in eastern Texas a few years ago. One of our favorite birds.
