Can any of you birders out there help with identifying this bird?
She (I’m assuming it’s a she) was perched near the feeders today but I didn’t see her eating. She’s really pretty with those black wing patches and dark bill. She’s about the size of a female cowbird, which was what I thought she was at first.
Thanks for all the input. “She” is a “he” – a juvenile male Brown-headed Cowbird molting into adult plumage. Those very distinct wing patches certainly had me stumped.

This old section of fence practically disappears under the heavy growth of wild grapevines.
The late afternoon sun gives the leaves a golden glow.
