Boat-Tailed Grackle

I gotta be honest, when it comes to identifying sparrows, crows, and grackles, the different varieties are difficult for me to distinguish sometimes. However, after comparing these photos to my photos of the Common Grackle, I'm tentatively labeling this grackle as a Boat-Tailed Grackle. The tail looked significantly bigger on these, and you can see how it's fanned out below... At any rate, I spotted this at Harbour Town, Hilton Head, SC on 6/17/12.

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to comment - I love hearing from you. If you can help me out with identifying any of these mystery birds or correct any mistakes I've made in identifying the others, I would so appreciate it! Happy Birding!
