Some sort of Icterid I believe. But can't find any in my books with a black and red eye. Perhaps a juv?

Brewer's Blackbird female for me - I'd call that eye brown, not red, too; that fits OK for Brewer's female 'dark eye' in Sibley

Does look like Brewer's BB except for the eye, which has me puzzled. The Brewer's eye is black in the centre with bright yellow around it. The Dark Eye version has an all-black eye. This one is black in the centre with a pinkish or light red colour around it. Perhaps it is just the way the light shone on it?

The eye looks pale brown on my monitor, which is ok for a female Brewer's Blackbird. Their eyes are usually dark, but can be even lighter than this.
