small back birds

by Linda Ainsworth
(Pineville, LA)

We have a VERY large flock of small black - at least they appear black with some brown on wing tips - in our back yard which consist of hardwoods and pines. They are eating seeds on the ground and then flying from place to place. Wonder what they are? We have never seen this before.

Thanks
