Birders: Help me figure out what bird I saw today! It looked a lot like the bird in this picture - the Greater Ani
- but that bird's not usually sighted in North America, according to various internet sources.

My bird looks almost exactly like the Greater Ani in that picture, down to its blue and black colouring, white iris and tail length and the bird's size.
The only thing that didn't match up in physical appearance was that my bird seemed to have a slimmer beak than the Greater Ani. My Googling also tells me that the Greater Ani is from South America, and I saw this bird in a fairly urban area of Toronto.
Wish I had a picture, but I couldn't get my camera in time. Best informed guesses as to what this bird could be?
