Why isn’t this a juvenile, male Brewer’s Blackbird? The bill doesn’t look
long enough from this one photo to be a GTGR. Same with the overall
proportions.

As with Nel’s bird, judging these icterids based on only one photo and
without the aid of seeing the bird in person certainly has its pitfalls.

Good Birding,
