Hear ye Hear ye………..



The Grackle seems to be telling everyone about Florida’s Boating Regulations.

In the mornings the top of each tree around Lake Parker held at least one male Grackle. I always look forward to the return of the Grackles here in Pa. as one of the early harbingers of spring and just today I sighted my first for the year.

This evening, as my wife and I traveled to Hagerstown Md., I also noticed a reddish cast in the tops of some maples. Certainly spring is only around the corner.

Are you sure about spring coming, Salty. I'm quite sceptical!

March isn't done yet! you can still have some winter left! I am enjoying all the birds you found in Florida!

Does a grackle have a white tail? Hmmm......I guess I've been calling some sort of crow/blackbird a grackle. And isn't some place in the country being overrun with grackles?

We don't have these, from what I've seen and heard about these I think I would like watching what these get up to..
That's a great capture on the sign, I like the humour of it.

Nice placement for your logo.

I am glad someone is seeing some signs of spring. Up here, they are very few and far between. That white stuff just will NOT go away!

That reddish cast sounds like good news to me. If the rest of this snow ever melts then I will get really excited.

That is a nice photo of the grackle giving it about all he has got.

Love this herald of regulations. Great humor in this shot.
I don't think we have any Grackles here in Northern California. Are they a relative of the crow?
