Melodious Blackbird (Dives dives)

The Melodious Blackbird is not very distinctive, with an entirely black body, bill and eyes. Although the plumage is black, it can look blueish under the morning light in the rain forest. I have probably seen this species a bunch of times, but wasn’t aware of it, as it can be confused with the Great-tailed Grackle and the Groove-billed Ani. It is pretty common around the country, and can be found on almost any habitat. It is relatively big when compared with tanager species that are found in the same habitats as this bird.
