Grackle

As an adult he will be a long tailed blackbird with glossy black plumage and irridescent blue\green\purple tones on his head, classy & sleek looking with a wicked bill. Hard to believe just now... I think he's having a bad hair day!

Such noisy birds! Sound a bit like rusty gates at times, especially the babies.

He's great. We first met Grackes ona trip to Florida. Very typical noise they make.

Thanks guys! Yes Mike, even though they are just blackbirds and sometimes bullies, they too have their beauty & I enjoy having them around. : )
