The black bird that is between the pigeon and the dove. I 'don't' think it's a Red Winged Blackbird - no red/yellow on the wings, not a European Starling I don't think unless it's young as I have a breeding pair in the tree going crazy keeping their young fed and they look nothing like it. The eye appears to be red in the photo.

Thanks for any ID help.

That's a Bronzed Cowbird. Copperas is just about at the northern edge of its breeding range in Texas.
