    Dave,

    You were right the first time. With the purple sheen on the head and the nearly white eye, it's a male Brewer's Blackbird.

    Here's a Brown-headed Cowbird:

    And a Brewer's Blackbird:

    Nice shot BTW.
     
  7. My turn to be wrong, I agree Brewer's Blackbird

    And more fine pictures as well.
