The grackles are back!!!

First I thought it was a mocking bird... I could hear "someone" going through their morning vocal exercises, but it was a little more grating than a mocking bird. Then I saw him at the top of the tree, and thought it was a crow, but crows don't sing like that. And then the sunshine made his coat gleam metallic green-blue, and I knew: the grackles are back!

(Watch out, other birds on the feeder. These guys are very, very hungry. Every day.)
