All though a raven (I'm taking an educated guess here) says nevermore, so much more can be said about this bird. There is a certain furiosity in its gleaming, yellow eye, that is one of a predator's, not a scavenger's.
The raven's feathers reflect the sun beautifully. Normally, when no light can hit a raven's shoulders, the bird itself seems as dark a dreary as the cloudy day it stands in; as if impending some foreboding doom.
But fortunately, light shines down upon the raven, giving it clothing like a rainbow of iridescent blues; shades clashing as if in a battle field.
A furious bird indeed, he/she is.
What do you think?

It's a grackle, and it's pretty common in the US.

I wish we had grackles where I live. Such pretty birds—and you've captured that in this photo, with the bird so distinct against the background and looking almost majestic. Perfect lighting too, highlighting its iridescence. Excellent work!

I really like how you can see all the fine feathers on this one, and yet they also come together to create a smooth and shiny surface. The neutral-colored background really brings out all the bold colors on this bird, too.
