This photo shows the typical head pattern of an adult female Great-tailed Grackle. It normally shows a darker cap, set off by a paler supercilium. https://search.macaulaylibrary.org/catalog?taxonCode=grtgra&mediaType=p&sort=rating_rank_desc <https://search.macaulaylibrary.org/catalog?taxonCode=grtgra&mediaType=p&sort=rating_rank_desc>

Don’t know what an immature’s head pattern is like.

The bird photographed at Baskett Slough is certainly not an adult Great-tailed grackle.
