Grackle Taking a Bath

 
I promised you some more fun from my New York trip, and here's a sample. This is a Common Grackle, Quiscalus quiscula. It's a largish bird, about the size of a blue jay.



They don't have a pretty song, but I like them anyway, because of their iridescent heads. This one was exceptionally happy.

I took this the same day as the post linked below.

Tomorrow... work assignments. Wonder what I'll find?

I'm off for a bath too!

It is interesting to watch the grackles--especially the rudder-shaped tail as they fly.

oh how absolutely lovely!

He sure was enjoying that water. I always like watching the birds in the bath out in the back yard. Very entertaining

I love to watch happy birdies taking a bath. :) Now that the big frogs are gone, I can actually enjoy watching them do that in the waterfall of my pond--without the worry that they will be eaten!

Carolyn- Thanks so much for your comment! I guess a lot of people like grackles, there are quite a few videos of them.

John- do you splash that much?

Chuck- they look like somebody pasted their tails on wrong

Lynn- He was sure showing off!

Ann- I've wondered if they would like a birdbath here, even if we can't afford to feed them.

Lin- Your big frogs eat birds?
