I need help identifying this bird. There were 5 of them foraging along the shore of a lake near Flagstaff, AZ yesterday. I believe it's a grackle based on its size, beak and yellow eyes.IMAGE LINK: https://imageshack.com/i/pn8Fzv2uj

Wish I could see profile of head better. I’d think Brewer’s versa Grackle. Juvenile

Brewer's blackbird (juvenile or female). Thanks Park Ranger!IMAGE LINK: https://imageshack.com/i/plqjjbmmj
Yeah I really think it’s a Brewer’s. Juvenile or female. Fall season birds can be a real headache for ID sometimes. I also wouldn’t completely rule out Rusty. I emagine you need to hear them to be sure?

BTW, I couldn't find a thing online about a brewer's versa grackle.
Possibly the meaning was "versus." Brewer's blackbird?

Yep...no wonder I couldn't find a "brewer's versa grackle"
