Black bird with white eye ring

by Erik
(Cambridge, Ontario)

I just saw a bird that looks like a common blackbird but it has a ring around its eye that is white and looks like the eye hieroglyph from Egypt. It was hopping around my back yard. My daughter called it an Egyptian kangaroo blackbird but I am sure that is wrong :)

Any help identifying this bird will help.
