The thing that confuses me is the yellow eye thing, and these birds were with flock of grackles. He was the only brown eyed bird of the bunch and he was about 4 feet away from the other bird.

FYI: I just looked into Sibley and he clearly shows the juvenile Common Grackle with a dark eye, turning yellow in the adult. Although he does not comment on this change, it is very obvious in his illustrations.

ADDENDUM: I just went on line to the Cornell Ornithology Lab website and they explicitly state that juvenile common grackle have a dark eye.

I thought I might add these here to widen the audience (X-posted from the 300mm plus lens club)

Such a curious bird. Such a great combination of color and behavior to camouflage itself.
