Not a Cowbird, as you said, and so far I am not seeing young of the
year except for Starlings, which of course it isn't, either. It is a
little odd compared to what we expect to see around here!

The bill seems slightly decurved. It could just be an off-viewpoint on
a female Brewer's Blackbird, but I don't quite buy that because it has
a slight iridescence, while they look rather matte. As much as I like
Icterids in general, I am not wise in the ways of Grackles, so really
all I can do is say that Common Grackle seems possible. The tail
doesn't look massive, and there is no clue to the scale of the
vegetation around it.

Lots of help!
