Boat-Tailed Grackle(Female)

Quiscalus major

Description:

Boat-tailed Grackles are large, lanky songbirds with rounded crowns, long legs, and fairly long, pointed bills. Females are dark brown above and russet below.

Habitat:

Boat-tailed Grackles are a strictly coastal species through most of their range; however, they live across much of the Florida peninsula, often well away from the immediate coast. This spotting is in my backyard about twelve miles from the beach.

Notes:

These scrappy birds are supreme omnivores, feeding on everything from seeds and human food scraps to crustaceans scavenged from the shoreline. They come to my backyard and feed on rice a place there for the Muscovy ducks.
