The Grackles have arrived!  I love their shiny feathers!
They have pretty good eye contact, too, don't they?  haha.

  2. A pretty bird, for sure. But girl, he looks like he's got a score to settle with you. He looks mean.

    1. He was certainly looking at me
      as intimidating as can be!
      Not happy with the seed?
      Wanting some meat for the vulture-wannabe?

    1. They do have that stern look about them. I think it's the yellow eyes!

    2. Just looked them up ~ common in N America but nowhere else including UK.
      I think he must have had a row with the Mrs . . . . haha
