Grackle on Fountain

So I just took this photo of a grackle on our fountain so I could enter it in Jillsy Girl's Tweeter board.  You should check out her blog.  She has such nice photography and fun things to participate in.  It made me go out and watch my fountain for half an hour which I wouldn't have done otherwise.  Thanks Jill!

I know most people (especially birders) don't like grackles.  But just look at the beautiful iridescence on the head and neck and how the yellow eye stands out against the dark bluish purple. This one enjoyed quite a nice long bath on the fountain.

I just realized a grackle was already posted earlier this month, but that's okay since it's the end of the month and I'm so glad you've joined in!! :-)

Oops, I even checked it, but missed those guys. Sorry about that.
