This is a good portrait of Dad and his chick. The father flicker still shows a drop of feeding slurry on beak, from where he was cramming it down junior's throat. This is in my garden, in Overland Park, Kansas, USA.
The grackle is an intelligent bird, and both parents feed the chicks that have left the nest. They love the mulberries that grow in my yard in Overland Park, Kansas. This one is searching the ground for Strypie, the feline ornithologist.

A very curious Common Grackle looking like it's wondering what I'm doing so close to it's own personal little pond. . . giving me the Stink Eye as some would say (ha ha) . . . I luv the colors of these guys when the sun hits 'em just right . . . Florida
