It's an icicle.
Parrots are one of the birds that rip there own feathers out when they get stressed. Just like those videos of people in the street screaming and ripping their clothes off.

In case you didn't know the difference, you'll mix them up... nevermore.

Wiki says...
Quote:
Grackle is the common name of any of eleven passerine birds native to North and South America. They belong to various genera in the icterid family. In all the species with this name, adult males have black or mostly black plumage.

Genus Quiscalus
Boat-tailed grackle, Quiscalus major
Common grackle, Quiscalus quiscula
Great-tailed grackle, Quiscalus mexicanus
Slender-billed grackle, Quiscalus palustris – extinct (1910)
Nicaraguan grackle, Quiscalus nicaraguensis
Greater Antillean grackle, Quiscalus niger
Carib grackle, Quiscalus lugubris
Genus Hypopyrrhus
Red-bellied grackle, Hypopyrrhus pyrohypogaster
Genus Lampropsar
Velvet-fronted grackle, Lampropsar tanagrinus
Genus Macroagelaius
Golden-tufted grackle, Macroagelaius imthurni
Colombian mountain grackle, Macroagelaius subalaris
Sometimes members of the starling family have historically been called grackles. Tristram's starling is sometimes known as "Tristram's grackle", and the hill mynas in the genus Gracula have also been called grackles.
But they ain't Blackbirds or Ravens.

The ravens are becoming more common hereabouts but crows are still way more prevalent. Ravens are pretty impressive birds.

I think a grackle is what we'uns in these-here parts calls a 'bluehead', a blackbird w/a blue iridescent head, same size/a little bigger than a mocking bird, frequently seen alongside starlings, 'specklebellies', we calls 'em.

Wull alls I know is, when I was a kid, these big ass black birds were everywhere, and I said crow and someone said no it's too big, the big ones are grackles.

So now you're saying my childhood was, once again, a lie

No, your childhood wasn't a lie. The birds were there and you saw them, that you didn't find out what they were isn't the birds fault or childhoods fault. It obviously wasn't important enough to you to pursue it, and still isn't. Never trust anyone over 17.

I could be wrong, maybe. Perhaps.

I thought I was wrong once before, but I was mistaken.
