Now that the Grackles have moved on, I miss them. I don’t miss their eating absolutely everything, but they were beautiful and so funny to watch.
The second one is my “curious grackle.” He was always looking around for something interesting. Most grackles were surprisingly shy and any move I made would get them to fly off in a flock.
Maybe they will be back in the fall. I don’t think they will like our feeders as much as they did the earlier models.
