White breast gray everywhere else

I live in Southeastern Minnesota (Rochester), and can't figure out what kind of bird this is...it's all gray except a white breast. It's a small perching bird. I've attached 2 picutres

Thanks for any tips!

Looks like you have a winter snow bird or what is also known as a "Junco".

I get them at my feeder all the time here in Cottage Grove, MN.

hi, your bird could also be a Black Phoebe. The junco usually has a lighter colored beak while the Phoebe has a dark beak. I live in Oregon so I'm familiar with the junco only. You can "google" pictures of both species online and decide for yourself.
