Yes indeed, they were tri-colored blackbirds. I'm a wildlife biologist from the Central Valley and have seen and heard a few tri-colored blackbirds before. There are plenty of red-winged blackbirds present in the vicinity for comparision. I was able to view them from above (from a second story deck, approximately 20 feet above the ground), unmistakenly observing the white wing markings below the red epaulets.
