Seen at Whittier Narrows Recreation Area. Initially identified as a Common Grackle, this bird (which had a limp) is now suspected to be either an odd-looking Great-tailed Grackle, or perhaps a Great-tailed x Common Grackle hybrid. Either way, an interesting bird. Tricolored Blackbirds in background.
