[Tweeters] Northern Mockingbird in Bothell?

Hello tweeters!

How likely is a Northern Mockingbird in Bothell?

I just got done with a brief bird walk around a small pond in the North
Creek area of Bothell before work. I was wrapping things up, when I saw a
gray-brownish bird with what looked to be white wing patches on each wing
land in a tree. I got very quick looks at it through binoculars before it
changed the position, making it harder to see.

I chased it for a little bit around the pond, and once again saw two white
wing patches as it flitted from ground to a large tree. I was not able to
find it again this morning, mostly because I had to go to work.

eBird lists it as rare for this area, but is there anything else it could
have been? Again, it was a light brown-gray bird, roughly robin-sized, with
very obvious white wing patches clearly seen as it took off.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Keep watching the skies,
