We spotted this bird at one of our feeders. It obviously looks like a grosbeak some of my family say its a "weird" black-headed grosbeak. But this bird we saw didnt have a black cap, it had a full black back and cape. there is no orange on the neck separating the head and back. i looked online and the bird that REALLY resembles the one we saw is the Black-Backed grosbeak, but those are said to only be in South America. Can anyone give some hints on to that this truly is?

If it weren't for the beak, I would say it's coloring is that of a Spotted Towhee. But The beak is that of the Black-Headed Grosbeak.
