Black Bird Blues

So, what does one do when a bird hits the front window and is stunned? Take pictures of course.

A Boat-tailed Grackle is one of my very least favorite birds. It is in the blackbird family and has a horrid song, if one can call it a song. They are bothersome and loud. Their eyes are beady and yellow. But just look at this guys colors!

I suppose he has to have one thing going for him, no?

PS For those interested, he did get up and fly away about an hour later. Athena stayed with him to make sure no cats got him.

I remember keeping a bird named Petrie in a hampster cage by my bed because he was injured and abandoned. How much she loves animals!- jess
