Great-tailed Grackles can often be seen pecking among leaves and vegetation, foraging for larvae and insects. They are highly visible birds with feathers of iridescent purple/black. Great-tailed Grackles have feathers that shimmer in the sunlight with exceptionally long tails which fold into a distinctive keel shape. They are songbirds with a legend saying they have seven songs representing the seven passions of life (Love, Hate, Fear, Courage, Joy, Sadness, and Anger). They also have a symbiotic relationship with cattle, removing and feeding off parasites.
