maybe boat tailed grackle


Recommended Posts

I'm not familiar with Boat-Tailed or Common, but it doesn't look quite right for Great-Tailed (which I see all day, every day). The bill seems short, wide, and a bit decurved; the tail too short and too wide; and the head is bulky without much of a neck. Last, and probably least, it doesn't have that "angry" facial expression I associate with Great-Tailed.

Yeah, the more I look at it the more confident I am that it is a Common Grackle.  Just a bit rusty with grackle ID right now. 🙂
