Although the name Common Grackle does not sound impressive or dazzling, this bird does have an eye-catching metallic purple and bronze color that is particularly noticeable when the sun's rays catch the colors.
Interestingly, the Common Grackle lets ants crawl up its body, most likely to eat any parasites that are clinging to its body.
