Caught this grackle high up in an oak tree. He was primping and preening and was really into it. Usually the fly away as soon as they spot me looking. But, this one was really making a show of it. here are 2 shots. one he is cleaning a wing and then flying off.

thanx, thekman!!! i have always overlooked grackles as just a plain and ordinary bird that is noisy, and sometimes just a pain in the neck. but, after starting in avian photography, they are actually a fairly attrective bird and mischievious too. i really like the eyes of grackles!!! makes them look really eerie and mysterious.
