Common Grackle Rodeo


I am having a common grackle summer this year.

A family of grackles just love our bird feeders in the backyard. But more than feeders, they love bird bath on the deck.

They do all kind of things in the water – they swim, drink, tale showers, play water polo, dive…

The fella on the picture does rodeo on the side.

I like grackles and, the same time, I miss jolly finches and woodpeckers that hasn’t been around lately.

Maybe, they don’t like when bigger birds play rodeo with the smaller ones.
