This looks like a hen blackbird, but does not have a yellow beak it is completely brown, with a tinge of a paler colour on its breast, I have not been able to identify it from web sites or bird books, there were two of them this morning, sadly I only had my phone with me thus the poor quality photos. They were here last winter too. Could anyone identify them for me please.

Thank you so much for the identifications. They do look like Blackbirds in every way except for their beaks which was throwing us somewhat. All observations much appreciated.
