  Common Grackles - La Crosse Wisconsin
The Common Grackle, most of us know this guy as just a blackbird. With his black and blue iridescent feathers, he is beautiful and so much more than just a blackbird. Usually a seed and bug eater, on rare occasions the Grackle will kill and eat other birds. I have photographed this behavior, a Grackle killed and carried off a Cliff Swallow. A few days later, this same predator was photographed with a Crawdad. But usually he is just a nice bird that hangs out in flocks and eats seeds and bugs. Enjoy.
