While I usually see grackles that look like they're a bit rode hard, a bit ravaged by time, I saw two today that look like they have managed to live their lives in the lap of luxury. As I leaned back against the edge of a pool with my little guy, two grackles landed at the pool's edge, and proceeded to take the most spectacular bath. They dipped in. They splashed a bit. They puffed out all their feathers in the most adorable way. Those grackles were livin' large!
And then one landed right beside me. It had a pretzel stick in its mouth. It dipped that pretzel stick in the pool as any kid would dip an Oreo in a glass of milk, and gobbled down his moistened treat.
