From my car window, I photographed this male Common Grackle, Quiscalus quiscula, taking a bath!

On cloudy days Common Grackles seem to be just another black bird, but in bright sunshine they sparkle!

Have a wonderful day!

  5. You got it in perfect light, Lea. I have noticed the same effect on Starling feathers.

  6. People seldom pay attention to grackles, and certainly don't give them their due. They are beautiful birds.
