Brewer's Blackbird, Euphagus cyanocephalus

The Brewer's Blackbird is a permanent resident of parts of western North American and a migratory species across much of the western and central part of the continent. It is a common blackbird noted for the glossy black plumage. The males, shown here, have almost a dark blue head and shades of iridescent green on their body. Females lack some of the shine and tend to be more of a brownish colour. The males also have yellow eyes whereas the female's eyes are black.

It is named after American naturalist and ornithologist, Thomas Mayo Brewer.
