The crows move in to get the best of the pecans and then they move on. I don't think that's nice at all!

Gerry said...

Neat pics. For some reason they keep going on our roof everyday, making a lot of noise. It's sounds like people are walking around up there.

It does look like a crowe, I've never heard of a grackle.
It has got some beady eye on it!

Jill said...

I can't tell them apart either! Great shot. Really like the black and white.

How's the foot coming along?

PKB said...

This shot is just perfect! I like the bird's strong profile against the bokeh background. I hope you are feeling better!

lisa said...

Hmmmm, guess I don't know the difference between a crow and a grackle either!! :-) I would have said crow also!
These are wonderful Janie.
I especially love the wonderful contrast in the black and white one. So nicely done!

SweetMarie said...

photo,something I can never get
right.The second photo shows of
the Grackle to perfection!

about? Hope you are better.

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."

I guess out of respect for the birds maybe we ought to consider their assigned name, but when you think about, would they really care? I believe that's a human concern, so it's not long of this world if you choose the long view of things.
You've captured the spirit and character of God's creature, and therein lies the beauty. I think Grackles are the birds that love my morning yard. I think crows are the birds that are black and caw at me during my morning walks. I personally couldn't ask for anything more that being able to look into its eye, as you've presented me the opportunity of doing here. I cannot for the life of me choose a favorite. my eye is pleased equally by each. now THAT is the trademark of an excellent photographer. happy weekend to you Jane. I hope you have a grand one and that you're feeling on the mend.

All this time I thought they were crackles with a c. I just looked in the bird book and sure enough it is a G. Beautiful black bird.
