Nice picture!

I agree with adult female Great-tailed Grackle. While adult males are fully iridescent black with yellow eyes and long, V-shaped tails, adult females are darker brown above, paler brown below, have a dark eyeline, a light-colored throat, and yellow eyes. Juveniles are similar to adult females but have dark irises.

also agree that this is a female great tailed grackle..for all of the reasons akandula mentioned plus...i have found grackles in general to be one of the fiercest looking birds. Perhaps it is the yellow eyes or the stance but have come to believe they could be ID'd ...well close..by the head and stance along
