Long time since I saw any, but my first thought was Prairie.

Prairie was my first guess but I thought with the very gray head it would have to be a 1st winter juvenile and the side/flank streaks appeared too well defined for a Juve. . I also didn’t like the dark tail but this could be just the lighting.

I actually didn't see you had written magnolia and was going to put this down as a possibility, but i rejected it because on the pix of non-'breeding male' birds they all seemed to have unbroken eye-rings, which this bird doesn't have - but, remember my disclaimer above!!

Searobin,
nothing wrong with that tail. The obvious flank streaks (as it seems in image) would fit a male. the grayish cheek a first basic.

I saw Prairie, because if some of you have Sibley you can see that one of the pointers he has on the female Prairie says that it has a dark spot or small bar of black on sides of the neck that come out almost to under the beak which you can clearly see in the pic and the Magnolia doesnt have. Plus the face patern seams more like a Prairie to me.
