Eye of the grackle

April 8th, 2015

Common grackle, perched on a tree branch

Grackles have interesting color attributes. See them in bright sunlight and they appear almost totally black (except for that iridescent head). See them in diffused light, and in addition to blue, you see brown, purple, and even a little green. But what I like the most about grackles is that piercing yellow eye.
