    Black bird in central TX, white patches/bars on wings, head like an ani. One bad photo.

    There has to be a mistake somewhere, as there's no such bird as you are describing. So I'll guess it was a nighthawk, and you made the mistake of thinking that what was actually head (with tiny bill) was head + big bill.
