What's a hatch-year Common Grackle doing in Wasco County? What do others think of this bird? I don't know what the plumage of a typical juvenile Great-tailed Grackle looks like in July, but that would be the more likely species for the date and location given GT Grackle range expansion.
Do you agree that the bird in the photo is a juvenile? Is the flat-looking head a useful field mark?
