Mystery bird taking a drink

Mystery Bird


When I took the pictures of the chipmunk, there were flocks of these birds at our bird feeder, pecking at the ground around it, alongside Grackles. This doesn’t quite look like a Grackle to me, but I am not sure what it is otherwise. A group of them had landed on the other side of our street, where there was a puddle, and were drinking from it. I got this shot with the zoom lens and cropped it down.

Edit: This bird is actually a female Grackle; it has different colors and patterns than the male Grackle does.
