Given your location, this is an extremely difficult call -- both Glossy and White-faced are in that area, and in this plumage they're nearly impossible to distinguish.

thanks a lot! for my education, wouldn't; the lack of pink in the eye be enough ?

 

Yes, eye color is definitely a clue, but I'm not sure we can discern that with 100% confidence from these photos.

Eye color only works for adults -- this time of year, youngsters all have dark eyes. Pyle (intended for use in-hand) states that some juveniles in late summer/early fall may not be identifiable at all.
