For some reason many people confuse starlings with grackles.

I usually leave grackles alone,they have some neat looking eyes.


I saw 2 more flocks of sandhill cranes heading north yesterday,there must have been a couple hundred in each flock.They fly so high it's hard to find them,but you know they're there because you can hear them.AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH,spring is in the air.
