The Unknown Bird

If you know what kind of bird this is, please do tell! My research turned up nill. He’s pretty though… A Post Update: This bird is called the Boat Tailed Grackle. This is the female. Thanks to my friend lonecoolman on Instagram, go check out his account. Isn’t she a pretty bird?

  2. My first encounter with boat-tailed grackles was on a briskly windy day in Charleston, SC. A male was tacking into the wind when the wind caught his tail, completely turning him in the opposite direction. After a quick moment of confusion, he apparently ralized it was easier to fly with the wind and he continued his flight the direction he came from!
