Juvenile bird with red gape, black lores


Recommended Posts

I accidentally flushed this bird out of a shrub (juniper?) this morning in Lido Beach NY. It startled me and I wasn't ready for it and didn't get a sharp photo. The area is loaded with Red-winged Blackbirds which nest there and I assumed this is a juvenile. The red gape fits, but the black lores puzzle me. Is it an RWBL?
