THE GRACKLES HAVE FOUND US

I haven't seen these in a long time but recently they started visiting again.  First one, then two and then the whole family.  If you would like to learn more about them click here.



Also sharing a couple of videos from the deck cam.  (Just to remind you that I have no say in what pops up afterwards - advertising and new videos.)

If you look at the end of the rail near where the birdhouse feeder is, you will see a squirrel standing its ground, if a little bit out of the way.
Smart fellow!
Hmmm.....




Enjoy your day everyone and thanks for stopping by.

  2. Oh my goodness. Now they will scare all the other birds away. They are interesting to watch, though!

    1. Hi Ginny, very interesting. So far they come at a certain time of the day when the other birds have had their share of the birdseed. I hope this lasts.

    1. I think they are considered a bit of a pest Diane, like the starlings. Have a good day also :)

  9. Funny you would show these! We were hiking deep in the woods and there was a flock in the trees right over our heads. It felt and sounded like the A. Hitchcock movie! Not very good! Your squirrel is pretty cute!

  10. Grackles are large intimidating birds.

  11. Interesting! This bird is new to me and reminds me of crows a bit, if crows had smatterings of rainbow in them and whistled instead of cawed when they sang.:)

    1. Hi Penelope, they are larger than a blackbird and smaller than a crow. I still find them very interesting to observe.

  12. These are about my least favorite birds, Denise, and starlings are another least favorite species. That said, you did get some great ca[ptures.

  14. LOL, cute squirrel! We have had a bunch of grackles too. They gobble a lot of seed! Fortunately they are shy and if they see me move they fly off.

  15. Grackles are such fun birds to watch, and when the sun hits their feathers just right, they sparkle!
    Hope you are having a great week!
