Great-tailed Grackle

Quiscalus Mexicanus


Now I know you cannot really see what is in this picture because it gets cut out but that is actually the reason I love this picture. I just missed it by a second but I think it adds to it a bit. Saw this guy in Cancun when I went there for vacation and they are EVERYWHERE, so that is how I'm sure of what kind of bird it is.

No species ID suggestions

Perhaps if you have another pic to add as a second pic in case someone wants to see the whole bird ;) - but I absolutely LOVE this pic! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks lol Ya I hate when you miss that perfect shot, but sometimes you get something just as good by mistake.

Ha! Very artistic. So many of my creatures say 'I can't wait around for ever' too. :)
