Thanks, both of you! After some image searching I'd say it's definitely a juvenile Northern Shrike. here's a good picture that matches very well: http://gallery.photo.net/photo/9946351-l...

Due to the lighter coloring and the lack of a distinct eyestripe...most likely an immature northern shrike

From the beak i'd say it's predatory, almost looks like the beak of a shrike, but there are only two species of them in america and neither looks like this. May need Liam's help
