Those are looking more grackle-looking. The tail looked short in the first. Maybe the first is a starling and the second grackles.

Agreed, the first showed a bit of an eye-ring, pretty sure it was a juvenile Starling. Agree with Grackles for the second set.

I would say they are female boat-tailed grackles, not common grackles. Could be juvie commons, though, I guess. Any opinions?
