Alan – we call these Grackles. I don’t know if that is technically their name or not. We never much liked them here, but they are pretty. They also make a horrible noise for their call, similar to a crow. Enjoy and nice pictures.
Just so you know who I actually am, my name is Alan Stucky and I'm a thinker, feeler, photographer, lover, man of faith, doubter, passionate, pastor, apathetic, ex-football player, tech-nerd, and a whole host of other things. It'll all probably come up at some point.
