do you have size? that would help, it is a bit battered! i'm only flicking through pics as you could.
is that yellow on it or a paler breast or photo artifact? you dont get young eurasian blackbirds there do you except as vagrants, or fieldfare. eyebrowed thrush?
i would go for fieldfare if that is paler breast and size is right
have you tried natural history museum or a nearby uni for help?
how did it get found/where etc? taxidermy?

Looks like one of the warblers or vireos. Bill seems too large for a warbler, but doesn't have the hook of a vireo... Perhaps bill looks larger because it's opened a bit?

If it's one of the warblers, my best guess would be Black-throated Green.

in that case tell them it is a rare 'avis niger daemonus' or subspecies 'diabolica' going by the extra set of bat-like wings

While I understand the thrush impression, if that's a teabag the bird must be tiny! (or teabags are an implausible amount bigger in Canada?!?) I'd go for (New World) warbler sp, but no idea about whether it can be got down to species...

The yellow legs should be a good clue. Blackpoll?
