Speaking of out my window

by Kay~Kacey on 10/12/2008

Anyone who follows my blog, knows I get a lot of wildlife out my window. I dutifully take photos of the turkeys, the birds, the deer.

I love taking photos of all the excitement out my window.

But these guys? I do not like them.

Behold the grackle. Noisy. Mean. They chase away my beautiful cardinals and finches…and everything else for that matter.

I’ll give you that their feathers are beautiful. Such an iridescent shine. But I still don’t like them. The bullies. :angry: Too bad the pepper SuperGuy put in the bird feeders didn’t chase away the grackles! That would have made me happy. It’s always good to make Kacey happy.

Does this grackle not have the spookiest eyes??

I wish the grackles would go away. Anyone want me to send them your way??

Grackles are the jerks and bullies of the bird world, aren’t they? Their irredescent feathers do nothing to redeem their unmannerly ways. They are like that cousin everyone has that shows up drunk on Thanksgiving and proceeds to turn the entire day into an ordeal.
Not that I have a cousin like that. I’ve seen it happen on TV, though. And I’ve read about it in this miniature newspaper I’m reading this morning.

I suppose they have graackles around here but I’ve never heard of them!

I have grackles too and they destroy my suet feeder. No thanks! You can keep them over there.

I’ve never heard of grackles. They ARE beautiful, and I’m with you on the eyes … they’re pretty frightening.

That is some menacing look on that bird’s face! Yipes!

We have owls that screech so loud during the night! I know they help keep the rodents down but it’s so annoying when the screeching wakes you from a dead sleep!

Grackles are evil. I hate them with a passion. They were awful around here last year. Haven’t much a problem this year, thank goodness. Or you’d probably be hearing me scream all the way up at your house.

I have to admit I’ve never heard of a grackle — but they ARE beautiful. But, I also know that, in nature as in all things, “pretty is as pretty does.” So, thanks but no thanks on the grackles! :smile:

Awwww. Poor grackle. I don’t have them. Can you tell?

Mental P Mama October 12, 2008 at 1:33 pm

And I guess I just put the whammy on myself. :twisted:

They are thugs, aren’t they? Sort of like gangsters in cheap, shiny suits… maybe SuperGuy should get a pellet gun… or is that way too harsh?

Beautiful pics, though!
xoxo,
Mary
