Horizonal Tail Stripe On A Common Grackle

Very interesting white horizontal stripe across the tail of (what I think is) a Red-winged Blackbird.

I have one of these at my suet in New Rochelle NY for the last 2 days. Looks very much like this picture but is definitely brown with some light speckles scattered over its top feathers. Exact same tail-feathers and dark beak. Looks rougher and browner than the other grackles

Peggy says:

I had three, one larger than the other two, in my front yard today in Walton Ky.. They were under my Ash tree. Had never seen one before.

I was just attacked by a bird that closely matches this description on the front porch of my mom’s house. The band on the tail feathers was across the very bottom of the tail however and actually seemed to be a gray color. I don’t know if there was a nest nearby but it kept swooping down at me about 3 times, then retreated for about 5 seconds and then returned and dive bombed me again about 3 times. I walked back into the house reasoning that there must be a nest nearby. This happened in McCreary County Kentucky.
