It is likely a Bronzed Grackle. Virtually all grackles  in CT are Bronzed Grackles. The second most common form are intergrade Bronze / Purple. Bona fide Purple Grackles are very very uncommon in CT with very few records from only extreme southwest part of the state. That form is more common south of CT.

This gallery shows Bronzed and intergrades, but they are not labeled.
