Looking for confirmation as the photo isn't very good and the bird seems rather large for a cowbird. Taken today Colorado.

The bill looks too slender too - either Brewer's Blackbird or Common Grackle?

I was just going to add what I thought might be a brewers blackbird. Taken today also. So, you could be right. I did see a male brown headed cowbird also today.
