is this bird a kind of black bird? NEW
by: Brook

I love learning about birds! I've never seen a grackle and this bird looks similar to a Brewer's Blackbird so
I was curious about the comments and decided to learn more. Yes, this is in the blackbird family and, specifically, is a Common Bronzed Grackle.

I guess learning is more fun now because I'm gettin' old, when I was younger fun was something completely different than it is to me now.

I raised a grackle last summer.. NEW

...and agree this is a grackle. (I released mine vis a vis a wild life rehabilitator.) We get invaded by them this time of year; because of the bird feeders. Because of their size, they can be bullies. And they don't get along with Blue Jays at all. This year most of the feeders are for suet - and they can't hold on to the upside down holders. Three or four will not be a problem for you.
