I was super excited to see this guy the other day (although the grackles and bluejays were NOT happy!), and wanted to share pics. I've never seen one in person, and it appeared to be even smaller than the grackles that were scolding it. I think it's the pale gray morph.

I know! It was sort of weird...maybe 75% adorable and 25% terrifying. I think because of its huge eyeballs--I could have sworn it kept giving me the stink eye. :)
