Wild Bird Wednesday
Here’s another juvenile visiting the feeder. This is a Grackle, but not sure which one just yet. I’ll have to get a closer look at the adult that accompanies it, but it usually stays in the tree, out of sight, and makes a warning call when it perceives a possible threat. Its feathers will darken and take on an iridescence, and the eyes will turn yellow, like this one.
I just realized, this is the first year I’ve not seen any young Brown-headed Cowbirds. Their eggs are “dropped off,” then incubated and raised by another type of bird.
