[Tweeters] Bird ID Challenge

Friday forenoon I photographed the southern ends of birds flying north
at Steilacoom Park. There were at least 17 in all, flying in a loose
flock. I would say they were somewhere between the size of a pigeon and
a crow. The photos are butt shots taken at extreme range. However, you
can see they have a white breast, which narrows to a strip and then
becomes wider near the tail, with a distinct brown spot. Perhaps
someone who knows their birds backwards and forwards can identify them.

Thanks in advance for any help.
