Saw this bird today in NJ. At first I just thought it was a Robin, but the bill is dark and no red or streaking on chest. Please help! Thank you!

Looks like a Gray Catbird, tough to be positive from this photo though. If the previous couple photos were taken in the same place, that would be a point in favor of Catbird as they favor similar habitats.

Most recent 5: Roseate Tern, Red-necked Stint, Arctic Tern, Red-necked Phalarope, Sandwich Tern.

This guy's whole head was black and his bill seemed thicker than a Catbird's.

Bill's definitely not right for a Catbird. I'd go with Juvie Common Grackle.
