  1. good pick up. I’m getting the opinion that the Grackles might be a little intimidating to other birds, are they?

  2. Part of that glare is definitely the tilt of the head…but the yellow eyes are much fiercer-looking. :-)

  3. So it seems to be a “villain”.

    Let the vines lock it tight to the tree.

    I am not sure why, but these birds always look like they are mad.
    Great shot, Pat, and a wonderful expression on this one.

    He/she means business alright!

  10. “By George, I think he’s got it!” – Certainly looks menacing enough to me. Great shot.

  11. Ooohhh…that’s quite the stare-down!
