Fun fact: this grackle is also a fan of the rapper Common, even though most grackles aren’t.

Don’t Grackles make some sort of weird sound?

Found it.

Go to the third audio clip below the video to hear the ‘rusty gate’ sound.

Icterids. So noisy. I’m always entertained by Bluejays’ ‘rusty clothesline pulley’ sound- like a longer version of ‘rusty gate.’ But their continuous early AM screaming on Spring mornings (when they have young in the nest) makes me want to twist their little heads off.

I read an interesting little book called ‘What The Robin Knows’ a while back, it’s pretty interesting. There’s a section on blackbirds that describes how different their behavior is from other birds.

What did the robin know and when did he know it?

Lots of grackles around here

lauraw, thanks for mentioning that book. I just requested it from my library.
I’ll buy it if I like it a bunch.
