Hi all, I think this is a non-breeding Blackbird.

I can confirm male Red-winged Blackbird.  I don't know enough about them to tell whether it's a young one or an adult in nonbreeding plumage, though.  I'd just call this a spring male.

I agree with red wing blackbird -- I think it is a non-breeding male, juveniles don't normally have such uniform markings, I find them to be much more patchy with the colour coming in.
