Grackles en masse
In the last post I talked about the way the grackles (Quiscalus mexicanus) used to congregate in large numbers on the power lines at US 183 and Braker Ln. at sundown each day in autumn. Because they’re not doing that this year, I showed a photograph from 2011, but it was a picture of a single bird. For the benefit of viewers who weren’t flocking to this blog a year ago, here’s another photograph from December 7, 2011, one that shows the masses of birds that used to congregate here.
