interesting sighting! I have never seen that species before. Are they common in your area?

only one I have ever seen and I am hoping I have identified it correctly as I have only started trying to identify birds using bird books and internet sightd

It matches the one in my book. Great sighting. They are listed as a species of Special Concern by COSEWIC.

I'm thinking this is a male Common Grackle: heavier bill sl. downcurved bill, iridescent blue sheen to head
