  2. I have yet to see Grackles as colorful as these! Even in sunlight, their feathers take on a uniform deep purple, almost black.

    1. Looking at fellow bloggers’ posts, I’ve realized that there are two kinds of grackles: common and “boat- tailed”. The boat tailed are more of a color, while the common ones seem to be anything, depending on the Sun. I remember one day being so excited because I saw a brand -new shiny exotic bird at the feeder, only to realize it was my good old grackle in a different light! 😉

  4. Such intriguing birds. Their feathers are as varied as their vocalizations and behaviors.
