Saturday we returned home from a big city excursion to find a huge flock of blackbirds in our yard/acreage.
They were very noisy and hard to capture on camera.
On closer inspection my son determined that they were Grackles. With their iridescent sheen, he said it was obvious. To him, I am sure.
He was able to get a little closer than I was. He told me my camera was spooking them.
A few years ago I shared this article about a little girl who fed crows and they returned in kind with gifts. An interesting read, for sure.
Linking up with The Barn Collective today.
