A Common Grackle stopped in to check out the seed feeders. I put him on a gold textured background to compliment his beautiful gold eye. On a sunny day these large birds are a lovely iridescent blue black color. They are noisy and rather obnoxious and when they bring their friends they are capable of emptying a feeder in a matter of minutes ! I do enjoy watching their antics.
