Is anyone able to discern a species – or likely species – from these largely silhouetted images?   My suspicion is that it’s a Rusty blackbird, although that could just be wishful thinking (i.e. wanting to add another checkmark to “The List”).  Photo was taken yesterday in northern NJ.  Thanks.

Common Grackle, bill size.


Haa!  I'd take it if ANYone knew Common grackles, it'd be you.  ?

Bummer...  But thank you for the responses, both of you.

I'm seeing a pale eye on my laptop, although it's a little difficult to discern with the image quality.

That's one of the first things I noticed.

Yes, I wasn't sure about the actual eye color (hence "This could be..."). The picture is underexposed and makes it difficult to clearly determine eye color.
