Please help ID grey bird with "Gros" beak

Recommended Posts

I saw this bird around 2pm in a residential neighbourhood in London, Ontario, Canada.  My first thought was catbird because of its grey appearance. That was before I noticed the thick beak.  Is this a blackbird of some kind?  A brown-headed cowbird without the brown head?

This is actually a female Brown-headed Cowbird! The females are very plain overall.

Thanks! I thought they were more brown than grey.

The males look like this, and the females look like this.

Thanks Kevin. The female link takes me to a mix of male and female cowbirds, and I just thought the females pictured there look more brown than grey. Admittedly, my picture was taken in the shade!
