Common Grackle

Quiscalus quiscula


Blue-black iridescent head with black feathers and bright yellow eyes.


In the Spring we usually have a lot of grackles puffing and strutting around in our yard. They are omnivores, so we see them picking in the grass as well as eating some of the bird seed mix we put out; they seem to prefer eating on the ground.
