(Un)Common Grackle

This Common Grackle stopped by and helped himself to a bit of a snack.


I know he is considered an ill-mannered intruder at most feeders, but I rather enjoy having him around.


When I saw his colorful markings I couldn’t help but think that we should change his name to Uncommon Grackle!
