I live in Raleigh, NC, and have a very busy three-feeders balcony. Yesterday I got a new pair of birds and they were back today and I am unsure of what they are. I am using a photo from online - my balcony is too dark to get a decent photo. The difference from this grackle is the coloring - a lovely grey/brown all over, definitely not black or iridescent. But the tail is just like this photo and the beak is also dark. A very sleek, elegant bird, fairly large, more slender than the robins but the long legs and long tail make the birds look big. Both were identical. They look like photos of female boat-tailed grackles as to color but they are obviously a pair. Any thoughts appreciated. I am new to bird-watching but love it, especially now when we are quarantined.
Seems like all the gracks around here are bruisers, so would really like to confirm these are all Boat-taileds... They may or may not be the same bird(s) in each pic Along south shore Long Island this weekend. Thank you.
