  16. Come to think of it, they are more well-mannered at the feeder than say the red-winged blackbirds, though a little messy. This is a nice portrait!

  17. I love the sound of their name…. and am fascinated by their eerie look!

  18. love the watercolor effect Pat:-)

  20. I like the grackles,, but a group become a noisy bully crowd that eats everything… Great photo..I love their eye..It shows intelligence to me.. Michelle

  21. Such beautiful texture and image!

    They can be loud, obnoxious and just plain mean at times. In the right light and when alone, it’s a handsome bird! Nice image!
