Coruscating Plumage

Boat-tailed Grackle (Quiscalus major)

I wish this photo was a bit crisper but I’m sharing it anyway since I am so enamored with this handsome fellow. I mean, if I was a female grackle, I’d be interested.

Oddly, most of these birds that live here along the Gulf of Mexico have a dark eye while the ones that live over on the Atlantic coast sport the yellow eye. I wonder how he ended up here?
