Blackbirds

(Abilene, TX)

A small flock of "black" birds visited my feeder today (25 birds eating seed on the ground beneath the feeder). The were slightly smaller than European Starlings and had black bills as well as squared off tails. They were going crazy after some seed. I could not recognize any easy signs of male female differences. I do get European Starlings but never in sizable flocks, plenty of grackles and an occasional cow bird or two. These did not fit those bills! Any thoughts as to what these were?
