I have adopted a simple philosophy about birds. If you can’t get rid of them, take their pictures. Garry got all the really good pictures. He got them up in the air, flying. I got this one because he was close enough to shoot. All the ones of the flock were just hanging oak leaves. I feel lucky I even got these. The others were taken a couple of days ago. You should not be surprised that I have a lot of Grackle pictures.
