It’s easy to understand why birds love it around here. We have abundant space for them to enjoy, and obviously plenty of food sources to keep them fat and happy. These little black beauties, which I’m pretty sure are grackles, weren’t bothered a bit by stormy skies and rain tonight as they cozied up to each other along a county road a little west of Granger tonight. These critters are fascinating. Two things that I don’t get: 1) why they’re not electrocuted and 2) how they manage not to smack each other into oblivion when in flight. Amazing.
