Awful awful pics of a black bird

Recommended Posts

Heavy crop from ~200 feet out. In Austin day before T-day. 
Probably a RWBB, though its general impression feels off. The upper mandible looks longer than the lower; there seems to be a darker facial triangle; there's no discernible epaulet--even through my 8x42 binocs. Don't know what else it could be, though.

Thanks for your input everyone.  Blackburnian, what are your criteria for BRBB? Is it the general tubby shape?
I mean, it definitely occurred to me as well, given the uniform coloring, but the absence of the yellow eye made me doubt myself. I suppose if we're not too picky about whether we're looking at brown or black (and the "quality" of the image makes that a real issue) this could be a female.
