A True Caribbean 'Pain in the Ass'

My favorite Puerto Rican bird is the chango, or greater antillian grackle [antillerbåtstjärt]. Just look at its tail! I don't know if to compare it with our magpies or blackbirds. Or perhaps the jackdaw? Anyway, it's all around, whistling loudly from sunrise to sunset, very curios, always hungry as it seems, and a real teaser – on several occasions, I saw them ambushing the iguanas from above to pick  on their tails (!) just for the fun of it. San Juan, Puerto Rico, on May 20–25 2015.
