Common Grackle Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: Admittedly not my favorite species. They absolutely dominate my yard in the spring and early summer, including wiping out my feeders and intimidating other birds in my yard. They certainly do bring some character to the yard though with their antics, particularly their squawking and "competitive posing" between male pairs. As for photos, I think this is my favorite, mostly for the composition with the diagonal branches.
