Great -tailed Grackle, MG_1884

Another resident of my backyard.   This is a medium-sized, highly social passerine bird native to North and South America.  It is one of ten extant species of grackle and is closely related to the boat-tailed grackle and the slender-billed grackle.

When the sun shines on this bird feathers, it creates this multi color reflection which is amazingly beautiful to look at.
