Those who know me will not be surprised that while traveling on the holiday I have been taken pictures of birds, several species that are new to me in fact☺
This Juvenile Great Tailed Grackle is a distinctive, beautiful bird with unique colors and a lovely shine. The adult male Grackle is entirely black with obvious violet-blue iridescence. They are a large boisterous bird that measure between 15 and 18 inches with their very distinctive long tail.
