Birdwatchers rely on the color and shape of bird beaks as one key to identification. For many types of birds worldwide, a yellow beak is a prominent feature that distinguishes genders, subspecies and adults from juveniles. Toucans, blackbirds, gulls and mynas are among common bird species characterized by bright yellow beaks.

There are two birds with a black body and a yellow beak: the common blackbird and the European starling. Some common blackbirds will have different colored beak, often orange as opposed to yellow. European starlings develop white spots on their bodies during the winter before returning to a black, glossy coat the rest of the year.
Western Meadowlark: This short stocky, ground-dwelling bird has dark-streaked brown upperparts, bright yellow underparts, and a broad black V on the breast. It has a dark brown-and-white striped crown, sharply pointed bill and brown tail with white edges. Feeds mostly on insects but also eats seeds.

Starlings are chunkier birds and have long slender yellow beaks and black eyes. Some, depending on breeding, age and the season have black beaks. Summertime is yellow beak time but they may still retain their lightly spotted look. They also have short tails. No where could I find where a Grackle’s beak changes from black to yellow.
This handsome little finch, the state bird of New Jersey, Iowa, and Washington, is welcome and common at feeders, where it takes primarily sunflower and nyjer. Goldfinches often flock with Pine Siskins and Common Redpolls. Spring males are brilliant yellow and shiny black with a bit of white.
