a beautiful, intense bird - yes, with a bit of a 'distant' look. are you sure it's not a grackle?
How are you feeling. I did a post about crows today too. Only I didn't have any pictures. I can just stand and watch them and all of the hijinks that the do. These are amazing shots.

They are interesting - but can't say they are my favorite! sandie
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!
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!
I can't tell them apart either! Great shot. Really like the black and white. How's the foot coming along?
Good shots Janie..... wel done again.Greetings, Joop
Piękny czarny ptak i na drugim zdjęciu bardziej mi się podoba. Pozdrawiam
if its a black bird it a crow to me, wonder how she knew it is a grackle or maybe a raven or a black bird. i know they are different but how. great shot
This shot is just perfect! I like the bird's strong profile against the bokeh background. I hope you are feeling better!
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!
This bird looks so focused. Great photos!
Another wonderful photo.Great contrast in the black and whitephoto,something I can never getright.The second photo shows ofthe Grackle to perfection! Are you driving now and out andabout? Hope you are better.
"What's in a name? That which we call a roseBy 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.
Greetings from Oz. Your photos are so sharp and wonderful. The coloured one makes me feel glad I can see in colour. God Bless. Crystal Mary
Dear Janie, Just dropping by to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. Catherine
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.
