I remember when I was at Tybee Island, GA with some friends one year ---and we put out some birdseed for the birds on our back porch... WOW--I've never ever seen that many Grackles in one place... ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Its a different bird in subdued light, love the sheen and glossy effect the sun gives it

Gemma Wiseman said...

Such a beautiful depth of colour in this bird's feathers. Love the pose of the head...as if he is being humble.

Shey Wicklund said...

It does show great colors with right lighting. Nice capture.

Margaret Adamson said...

HI Carlette Brilliant bird shot.

You captured his lovely colors -- something I definitely tend to overlook with Grackles.

Naquillity said...

he looks to be quite content at the feeder all alone... i had three grackles visiting my feeder this morning and some starlings too. hope all is well. have a great day~

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

You captured the beautiful iridescence-- the blue of its head and the "bronze" back which most of our south Florida grackles lack.

Pretty birds, I always see them at Target in the parking lot...I've decided they come for the popcorn that falls from kid's bags. LOL!

Great looking bird - Great Tailed Grackles pop up in the latest post on my Wordy Blog - you may enjoy it, if you have time!

I keep seeing the great-tailed variety everywhere. I'm slowly learning to appreciate them. Your photo is lovely.
