Explanation:
Από wikipedia:
The Great-tailed Grackle (Quiscalus mexicanus) is a large icterid blackbird , also referred to simply as "blackbird", and occasionally "crow" or "jackdaw", though it is not a member of the Corvidae. Similarly, it is often called "cuervo" in areas of Mexico where there are no true crows.

Από OED:
grackle
[Anglicized form of the generic name Gracula, a mod.L. fem. corresponding to L. grāculus jackdaw.]

Grackle, λοιπόν, και graculus στα λατινικά, είναι η καλιακούδα, το μαύρο κοράκι. Σαν κοινή μετάφραση, θα αρκούσε.

Για επιστημονική μετάφραση, όταν δεν υπάρχει πασίγνωστος εξελληνισμός της επιστημονικής λατινικής ονομασίας, αρκεί να δώσεις αυτήν (πολλές φορές, επιβάλλεται ακόμα κι αν δώσεις την ελληνική).
