Artist's Description

Out shooting Great Blue Herons who were not in the mood to gather twigs for a nest, fly, or even move much.
Fortunately the local grackles were also nesting and a bit more active. This one is gathering nesting materials.
Grackles have feathers that appear black with purple, green or blue iridescence on the head, and primarily bronze shine in the body plumage.
