It looks like a Grackle but I "googled" it and came up with this link. You should check it out. Apparently your bird isn't the only one but no one seems to know WHAT it is.

I also say the following comment about the feathers:
"If you don't find your bird, sometimes individual feathers will lack pigment."
Good luck!
