Both birds are grackles - male and female.

The top bird looks like either a boat-tailed grackle or a great-tailed grackle, neither of which should occur in West Virginia. Are you sure about the location? I don't know what the brown bird is, but if it's with one of the previously mentioned grackle species, a female of that same species sounds like a good bet.
