Black Vulture or impossible to tell?

How was it flying? If it was flying like a crow, I would suggest it might have been a crow.

You have a good point.  It wasn't gliding like a vulture, nor was it in serious wing flapping mode like when the vultures need to get started.  The pattern was much more like a Crow - No American Crows anywhere near me, so I'm thinking was probably a Fish Crow.  I'm going to leave it unreported though, as it's not clear enough to me.

Could also be a crow.

Yeah, it looks too bulky in the belly to be a Great-Tailed/Boat-Tailed Grackle to me. And the tail isn't all THAT great.

The tail in the last photo is way too long to be a crow IMO.
