I missed the prize under my eyes

Here's the scene.  I pull up to a gas station to fill up with gas.  I spy a group of grackles making a racket in the grass.  I grab my camera just for some diversion until the pump stops.  One of them catches my eye.  It's windy, so I don't get a good view, but I snap the shot.  Back at my computer I notice that the grackle was not a grackle at all, but a Europan Starling.  I had known they were in this part of the world, but I had never noticed one.  Makes me want to go back through my grackle shots and see what else I may have missed.
