Definitely a grackle. I saw a boatload of them tonight where I was shooting. If you get a tree full of them, they are some of the more raucous of the birds around.

Thanks. There were several in our backyard today. They were after lunch.

When the sun hits them right the colors are amazing
Good shot
From a distance I thought they were black. Then I snuck up close to them and could see that they indeed did have a lot of color to them.:smile:

Thanks for specifics. I will put that on the image if I decide to print a small version of it.
