These Grackles have been coming around to the bird feeder for the last week. There is usually a group as large as 24 at a time. Before now, I've only seen them one or two at a time. Never in a flock like this!

Cheryl, you must have most of the Grackles in Nl. I 've never seen more than a couple at one time. amazing photos. great detail.

Yes, like I said, I've never seen so many. They come around the feeder every day.  I'm also involved with Bird Studies Canada feeder count and had to send them a photo to prove I had that many at my feeder.

These are beautiful. I grew up in Quebec and used to see large numbers of Grackles take their turn at our feeder as well as large numbers of Evening Grosbeaks. I have yet to see a grackle or a grosbeak in Newfondland.

Cheryl, do you still have these birds around. ???

By Cheryl on 3/7/2016 4:50:53 PM

Yes, almost every day, sometimes two or three times a day.
