    This creature is larger than the grackles that are common to New York. And more aggressive. Flew onto the tables next to ours and helped themselves to brunch like they were guests at the hotel. This individual might be larger than normal due to the ready supply of a calorie dense Western diet?

    They have a high degree of size related sexual dimorphism. From Wikipedia: For example, the male great-tailed grackle is 60% heavier than the female. Or fellow diner may have been a male of the selfies.
