The Great-tailed Grackle is a medium-to-large black songbird from the Icteridae family. Both males and females have long tails, but the sexes differ in color, with females dusky brown and males shiny black. Males are also slightly more... larger and heavier. The birds have a variety of calls that make them considered noisy pests by some. This is our totally cute version of the Great-tailed Grackle.
