Common Grackle

Common Grackle

 

Although the name Common Grackle does not sound impressive or dazzling, this bird does have an eye-catching metallic purple and bronze color that is particularly noticeable when the sun's rays catch the colors.

 

Interestingly, the Common Grackle lets ants crawl up its body, most likely to eat any parasites that are clinging to its body.

 

 

 

 

Nesting Habits of the Common Grackle

 

The nest of the Common Grackle is cup-shaped and constructed of sticks, grass, string, and other materials. Inside the nest, softer materials are used, such as hair and mud.

 

The female Grackle usually lays 1-7 eggs, which are usually bluish or grayish and spotted.
