Great-tailed Grackle

We have had large flocks of these guys and gals on our grounds for several days now.

Great-tailed Grackle MALE: iridescent blue back, large black tail, yellow eye.
Great-tailed Grackle FEMALE: brownish, same big tail and yellow eyes.

They are mostly ground feeders but do perch in trees and power lines. They are common all over Latin America and as far north as Texas in great numbers.

As most of the bird photos in this blog the were photographed from my apartment balcony. How fortunate I am! And you enlarge by clicking the image.
