Dang! Nothing in here either! by 


Finding no food, the luckless Grackle seemed a bit frustrated. People have not been sloppy enough! How RUDE!

shopping, grackle

I have spent most of my career as a French professor and a research librarian, and have been reinventing myself as a writer. I’m currently working on a book. My interest in photography began with the discovery of my friend Bonnie’s beautiful photo gallery on Red Bubble. I never cease to be amazed at the little discoveries one makes of God’s awesome creation.

    Aaaaw, so cute! (your words!!!) Your Grackles remind me a lot of our Mynahs, cocky, self-assured and full of it! Great pic!

  • Yes, so true. But I sometimes sympathize with the Grackles on days like today. THey could find nothing to slake their thirst and it’s VERY hot out there. I didn’t want to give them any coffee milk either. Not good for a Grackle I suppose. I had to catch the bus, but I felt bad for the one with her mouth open -hot and thirsty. Some of them die in the long heat.

    I think he’s shopping for the blue light special! This would have made a great ad for K-Mart in its heyday! Amusing little scenario from everyday life!

  • Yes, it was rather cute and resourceful. They were going at it like it was work, and for them, it probably was. Survival. But interesting adaptation. If i’d had anything to give them then and there, I would have.

  • Thank you, btw. Cute idea about the blue light special. I hadn’t thought about that.

    Somebody should suggest to the shopping mall management to put out some bird baths for them…

  • Actually, that would be lovely except for the problem of the neighborhood. Woudn’t work. They’d have to have a security guard just for the birdbath. hah!

    LOL, great capture.

  • Very funny to watch this one and another hop from one cart to another, peering down into the cart with each hop. One bird in each row!

    Fabulous capture – such a happy image !! (not for the poor hungry little bird, though!!)

  • What amazed me most was that he was hopping from cart to cart so systematically, checking each one for food. But it was warm weather, not freezing like today. Sometimes people at the bus stop feed them too. They get many handouts there.

  • Thanks for stopping by! Nice to share.
