They do look like separate species to the untrained eye. Lots of other birds have fooled me that way too--including our friend the Red-Winged Blackbird.

When I first moved to Florida I seriously thought the black/purple/green irridescent male boat-tailed grackle and the smaller sooty ochre-colored females were two separate corvid species. Fooled me for a few weeks!
