Photo Submission

I know that many people lump grackles into the pest category along with starlings and house sparrows but I think they are beautiful. They don’t often make appearances at my feeder but I love it when they do. I find their iridescent colors mesmerizing. This guy was the only bird on my deck when I took this photo and he spent a good 15 minuets or so staring up at the sky with his mouth open. My guess was that there was either a predatory bird or the alien mother ship up there but I could see neither.
