Help with bird ID

14 years ago

I can usually identify new birds by looking through my Sibley's and National Geographic field guides but haven't been able to ID the one in the picture with the Brewer's Blackbird. I've been seeing it around for about 10 days. It always comes alone but when it got here this time there was a pair of Brewer's Blackbirds in the feeder. The female left when the new bird arrived. This is in the northern part of the San Francisco Bay Area. The birds are very close to the same size. The feeder is in the shade with bright sunlight behind them so it's not as clear as it should be.
