HI Folks,

A friend of mine took this picture last week and asked if it was a cowbird. I of course said no, different beak among other things. However, do I dare suggest this to be a common grackle based on the beak which seems to be bigger than any blackbirds beak. The tail doesn’t seem long enough but maybe this bird is molting or it possibly could be a juvenile (kinda early would think)? Also, the eye is dark versus a light colored eye for an adult. Would appreciate some input, thanks :)
