Mystery Bird

Hey there ~
Does anybody know what kind of bird this is? My friend Irvane emailed these pictures to me today and said; "This bird has visited our feeder the past two weeks. It's something we've never seen before here in southern New Jersey. Possibly a Snow Bunting?"

I looked it up in my National Geographic Field Guide to Birds of North America. I don't think it's a Snow Bunting because it doesn't have any white on it's wings. I think it might be a Gray Jay. Does anybody out there know or have any ideas? Let me know what you think.
Have a nice night! Talk to you later, Sandy
