Observation details

Possible labradorius? I immediately noticed a dark dark dark bird flying around in the flock and for awhile I could not get on it and was extremely perplexed as to its identification. It literally looked like a black sparrow jumping around in the flock. It finally stood still for a short while and it was obviously a Savannah, though one darker than I feel like I've ever seen. It also appeared chunkier, maybe larger billed (though I'm not certain of this). It's breast streaking seemed thicker and more dense (though I was unable to get a photograph from the front), and it had very little yellow on the lores (if any). It's median crown stripe was clean and striking.; ph
