Time for some more grackle love – bath time

I promised to upload this video from a while back of two grackles having a great time in a fountain, sorry it has taken me so long. This was taken earlier this year while I was on vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

See how lovely and charismatic these birds can be! I adore how their calls and how their whole body changes depending on what type of call they are making. They certainly love the water as you will see!

P.S. I apologize for the shakiness!

And, just to fulfill your grackle love – because I know there are those of you out there who do love these birds – here are some stills from the same day. Enjoy!

  1. It must’ve been great to see all that live! Because it’s great to see them also not-live! Just amazing shots!!! 😀

    Happy Weekend! 🙂

    I can’t see them–I am blind–but have loved grackles and their varied songs since I was a small child (I grew up in south TX where they are plentiful, and mostly hated. Before I knew what they were called, I called them “wind up birds” because of that delightful sound they make at sunset and early in the morning) I didn’t fully realize how much I enjoy listening to these birds until I moved out of state…so I’m Googling grackels, and am grateful that a few people have posted videos of them. I’m happy to have come across a few blogs from admirers of the grackle, too. I’m glad to know I’m not alone! 🙂 Thank you; now I can proudly admit to my birdie fascination.

      Thank you Christina for your lovely message. I am keenly awaiting the return of grackles to my yard. Each summer I see flocks of up to 20-30. I have to admit they tend to keep most other birds away other than my hearty sparrows but I do love them. Glad you are able to proudly proclaim your love for them as well. You are far from alone. Cheers!
