Northern Mockingbird is rare west of the mountains but possible. One was seen briefly near Darrington a few weeks ago. Your description sounds good.

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.
