What is this Black Bird?

Recommended Posts

I agree with akiley a Boat-tailed Crackle would have a much longer tail, compared to the Common Grackle's tail.

Hi BobG. I agree with common grackle. I was just looking at this bird. I’m still trying to researching a large purple bird I had seen in San Diego. I have researched what others have given to me. I’m missing something in trying to convey what kind of bird I had seen.

A drawing would help a lot. A photograph is obviously optimal, but if you don't have that, then we can give it our best shot! A really detailed description can also help, but as the time of the sighting gets farther away, our observations become more muddled.
