The wise old grackle says,
“Despite snow today, Spring is on its way”.

Thanks Shannon. The grackle knows!
Rick : Given the action you have captured, you did amazing well to get the level of details on this. Awesome.
Thanks, Thomas. Grackles are hard, more skittish than you might expect.
I hear another message in that face:
“It may snow. Food may be covered. Ice may cover the water.
I still survive.”
I hope we all survive, Pete.
Nope, nope, nope – it should be:
“Eat yer heart out falcons all!”
He’s a fierce (looking) fellow he is!
Thanks Amy. Grackles always seem vexed and wary.
What a gorgeous bird. Great shot.
They are really beautiful Moe, wish they were easier to photograph.
Fierce, ominous, a wizard . . . cloaked in feathers! What a powerful shot!
Thanks Diane. I’ve seen a few grackles in the past week, so I think they’re back for spring.
I have too. They can be fierce I remember they used to attack my dog in our yard as a kid . . . lol
Love their shiny coat . . . oddly enough, this one in particular seems to remind me of a bald eagle, such a proud stance
Again, great shot!
Thanks Diane. Their coloring is wonderful, and the shape of their beak makes appear to be frowning.
