I just saw a bird on my back railing that I can't quite identify. My iPhone pic is blurry on closeup.

From profile, it's the size of a Mockingbird. It has a light-to-medium gray head and neck and lower body, dark gray wing feathers, striking white outer wing feather, and white outer tail feathers a thin black mask, a thin, pointy bill,. It lets out a sharp, fairly loud, "Chep" but no other sound. Its loudness is what caught my attention here inside. When I first saw it, I thought it was a Mockingbird but its tail stuck out straight behind, never rising. However, a Mockingbird joined it a few feet away on the railing. My Peterson field guide doesn't show what I saw.

Anyone have a guess?
