Though I have grown accustomed to seeing black-and-white Brewer's Blakcbirds foraging at K-mart, I was nonetheless delighted to see a Great-tailed Grackle with black wings and tail, but the rest a mix of white, black, and a little brown on the neck. A verrrrry strange-looking bird. Seen near Bishop Creek Chevron among a flock of ~20 normals.
