Common Grackle

I had a flock of about a hundred of these marauding around the yard a few weeks back. They came back this weekend and I managed to get a nice shot of one of them.

    Don’t think there’s anything “common” about this bird!

    • You should see the uncommon grackle!

      Actually, you can’t tell from that photo but there were HUNDREDS of them. They were all over the ground and there were three or four of them on every feeder, as well as all over the trees. The flock seemed to wander around the neighbourhood for a few days.

      Those colours aren’t really apparent when you’re just looking at them. It took some work to get them to show!
