Grackle's Ingenuity





















I have a true appreciation for the Common Grackle's ingenuity. I watched this handsome fellow take a peanut off the feeder and then fly to the birdbath to dip it in the water. He dunked it three times, and then it was soft enough for him to gulp it down. Where there's a will, there's a way!

I love the new look!!! It's beautiful. I especially like the header photos and the saying. I'd like to get a new layout for my viewfinder blog... sometime down the road.
