This huge flock of birds appeared high above my house in Boca Raton Florida on January 8, 2019 at around 4 PM.  But what kind of birds is it - crows, vultures, grackles, pigeons,...?  In the cropped picture below you can see some of the feather pattern on their wing tips.

Based upon tail and wing shape, and that they appear to be all black, I would say Fish Crow. If they were a Grackle species, would expect to see some lighter, tan/brown/ grey individuals.

Tossing in the spread 'fingers' on the bird in the upper right of photo #2, I agree with crows.  How do we decide between Fish and American?
