WEC 255: Florida's Introduced Birds: European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris)

Figure 4. The Common Grackle (Quiscalus quiscula) is similar in appearance to the European Starling, but it is larger, its bill is thicker and never yellow, and its feathers are not speckled in appearance. Common Grackles also have conspicuously yellow eyes, and the body may be more bronze than black, as seen here.
