That’ll teach me to look at only the first picture. What I meant to say was that this is a juvenile Red-winged Blackbird. The side angle shows a long, pointed bill. The face color is more orange and the heavy streaks indicate juvenile.

…… that was pretty quick, Tom. Take a close look at that pointed bill, check out Red-winged Blackbird juvenile.

Any thoughts on what this might be? It was hanging out yesterday morning at Cannon Beach's settling ponds. With the yellow color on face and with no reference guide I considered "Savannah" but it doesn't have a light chin patch, chest seems too striped. Looks like a newbie. Ideas?
