The Birds

A Plague of Grackles

On a dark, rainy and windy day the grackles seem somehow excited, moving in ever-larger clouds like specks of pepper in the heavy clouds.


Gathering Place, 2011

Gathering Place

Highly social grackles gather on this tower and wires to talk and laugh all afternoon. It’s in the middle of a valley, easily seen and accessible from distances. Though it’s placed right next to a interstate highway, standing under it you can hear the birds’ cacophony over the sound of heavy high-speed traffic.

In case you can’t see how many are on the tower, here’s a closeup.
