Hi Deb, I am not sure about the boat tailed grackle, they have long tail and large bill? They are great photos. I hope you and your family have a happy Thanksgiving.
Cute birds....nice camera!Happy Thanksgiving to you!
Great shots of a beautiful bird.Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
another debbie bird mystery. i don't think it's a cowbird - bill is too long. i'm leaning towards grackle, even tho the tail is not very 'boated' here. :)
Try looking at Brewer's Blackbird and reading about their color--at All About Birds....and down at the bottom click on the photos of them and go through the slide show...I think it is the 4th photo shows a male and female.
Cute bird looks like he or she is hanging on. :)
Tremendous job getting so much detail of such a small (and mobile, I assume) subject!
Great photos. I don't know how you can catch so many great photos of birds. By the time I go in the houe to get my camera they are gone. Plus our are just pigeons that crap all over the place. TFSHope you and your family have a wonderful holiday.
Lot's of personality it that cute little bird!
Any bird that poses for photos like that is pretty special no matter what it is called. Great photos.
Very nice shots! I like seeing the detail. Great job, Debbie! Oh, and I'm not sure exactly what it is, either.
Wow, isn't he a beauty? :)
What a great poser.If only all birds would do that lol
You are right - so cute!!!
You always have the perfect bird shot. I never seem to get them. Have a great Thanksgiving weekend Debbie. I know you will with your family. B
A neat looking bird, Debbie. Nice catch! Happy Thanksgiving!
Well you know I'm no help with the name of the cute little guy! But I love his coloring!
Nice photos, Deb!I don't think it's a cowbird, but I'm stumped as to the identity of this little one. :)
Great photos Deb. Hope you and yours have a great Thanksgiving Day!
With that beak, I think it's a juvenile Common Grackle. It looks like the picture in Sibley book. A handsome bird, posing in the wind!
What a cute little bird! Love the photos!!!!
Wonderful images of a beautiful little bird..
Beautiful close ups!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Great either way :)Nice depth of field in that first shot, too.
Excellent pictures Debbie. You had a excellent poser there. I guess the consensus is that it's not a cowbird. Hope the mystery is solved soon. Juvie Grackle sounds good!
love that name Grackle; great photos
