I thought I saw them flying around can't wait for the rest of the birds to show up!
Today was the first day I heard bird song! So nice after they've been silent all winter!
A pretty bird, for sure. But girl, he looks like he's got a score to settle with you. He looks mean.
They do have that stern look about them, don't they? haha....Maybe he didn't like the seed. lol.
Lol! Maybe that's it. He's hungry and he gets sunflower seeds. HaHa!
haha...he looks like he wants a steak!
I've always thought their name and look is quite harsh... but I fancy his blue!
They do have a stern look about them! Those piercing eyes!
He looks scary 🙀 but the feather is beautiful for sure! On the first picture ... did he bring you a huge diamond? :-)
Well, I wish he did! haha.
Oh my goodness...that last picture...was that a "stare down" or what??? Did you blink first? HaHa Great shots, Betsy. Love them.
I blinked! He's definitely the boss.
Beautiful bird and stunning shots!Have a nice Friday
Those feathers are shiny! Although I do have to admit that his pronounced beak is a little scary...lol
haha..I know you...you hate birds! The only thing worse would have been himeating a strawberry...lol....
Sure has a lot to sayMaybe wants to be on displayLooks rather miffed tooAs the stare down is given to you
He was certainly looking at meas intimidating as can be!Not happy with the seed?Wanting some meat for the vulture-wannabe?
Hi Betsy - amazing bird ... love his colours I agree .. and that name! Grackle, Grackle ... cheers Hilary
He's a beauty! Yes, funny name...sounds like his cry, too.
Another new bird for me but captured beautifully. What stunning detail.What a strange name.He looks a bit cross . . . . lolWonder why? . . . . . have a good day . . . :)
They do have that stern look about them. I think it's the yellow eyes!Well, and those claws. haha.
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
Stunning shots - I see what you mean about the eye contact. Grackle? - don't see too many of those these days... (did you make that name up?).
No, that's their real name! Do you have them over there? Hope you aren't thinking it's a Starling.
He looks downright malevolent!
He's sweet, really. :)
What a mean looking face!
It sure is!
