Itza bird

itza bird

And that's about all I know about it at this point. A kind of speckled-stripey-sparrowy-finchy looking thing. Spotted at Moraine Hills State Park, McHenry, Illinois.

Perhaps one of my more ornithologically persuaded friends can help with an ID.

Thanks in advance.

It's a female Red-winged Blackbird.

I would have thought they would have been blacker and redder-winged.

Thanks for the ID!
