Young Blackbirds...

...are spotty! If you look, the spots are not white, but a pale yellowy-brown. They keep those spotty feathers from when they leave the nest until they moult in the autumn. In contrast, young Starlings have no spots, and the adults have white spots. A Starling would also have a shorter tail and would stand more upright, amongst other things.
