It is, and they tend to storm feeders, if you have too many - you'll have to remove those feeders temporary.

Nice shot

Great job catching the feather sheen of the feathers. The background color seems to compliment the bird as well.

Good photo, chako. You're right about what the bird is.

Nice shot. You brought out the color in the bird. Like the way the blue color shows in the head area.

Thanks for the response. I have about 8 that visit the back yard feeders. We don't mind their visits all that much. Their behaviour is rather interesting though. One will set himself up on the feeder, then his friends position themselves on the ground. The top one will then start tossing the seeds to the ground below to his waiting friends.

Having been an editor, I just want to clarify that this is known as a grackle......

Oops. I am bad.

I never noticed the typo in the title.
