  10. ...the iridescence of the male grackle is definitely a winner. What a great image. My photos of grackles always show mostly black, hardly any color. You did GREAT.

  18. Great shots! And now I'm wondering whether some of my goldfinches are actually pine warblers. I'll have to look more closely.

  38. What a great shot of the grackle with it's luminous plumage! In fact, great shots, all of them.

  39. For all the colours of the other birds, I do like that grackle.

    I think the cormorants were cooperating, but the egrets may have just be cashing in!

    Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.
