Default Its a bird, its a plane, its a...

Its a bird. I was right the first time. A gackle to be precise. Im posting this because of the odd angle it was shot at showing feathered dynamics.

Bynx - that's a terrific shot! It could be a "stealth" crackle with that tail design.

You're right Streets - crackle is what you get when you pour milk on your rice crispies.

I'd say it's a male Great Tailed Grackle depending on where Bynx took the photo.
