Boat-tailed Grackle

Quiscalus major


Looking at the tail and from what I can pick up from the eye color, I think this is a Boat-tailed Grackle. However, I am very unsure and would like someone to confirm my ID. I'm not sure if it is possible with the lighting provided. Thank you!

Thank you so much for helping confirm the ID of this one, Malcolm—a new one for me!

From Allaboutbirds: Eye color ranges from dull brown along the western Gulf Coast to bright yellow along the Atlantic Coast. Same as yours!
