Common Grackle (Quiscalus quiscula)
Also Maxwell found this little gremlin in a bush in our yard. This is the third baby grackle we’ve found in the yard this year! Every year we seem to have at least ONE fall into the yard that I have to catch and throw over the fence.
I feel bad just dropping them over to the other side but they’re fledglings and can glide to the ground, they’re just not strong enough to fly up and over the tall fence yet. I can’t just leave them to get killed by the dogs and I don’t want to carry them through the house and all the way around our yard and stress them further.
