Black colored birds in trees of the Bed & Bath store parking lot, in Folsom CA. Beautiful sounds! People just stopped and watched and listened. No one could identify. A bit smaller than a crow. Males were all black, females had some brown on breasts and underbellies. I have many books but cannot find these in any of them. If needed, I can return and take photos, but hoping someone else has seen these......

Hi Wendy, This is a brief description but I believe they must be Brewer's Blackbirds. Generally the male has a chartreuse colored eye and more often than not the female's eyes are dark. They do like parking lots!
