Over the course of the last few days of last week, as well as this past weekend, plenty of goings on in my backyard as I watched some grackle fledges flopping around. Now that the robins seemed to have backed 'off stage', the grackles have come to the front and it has been fun watching them. This sequence of shots, taken over the three or four days, shows one of the little ones being fed by an adult. Some good reference material once again and I am sure there will be grackles appearing here soon in one of my upcoming bridge works. Thank goodness for the invention of digital cameras!
