Pic of the Day

Boat-tailed Grackle, Quiscalus major; Wakotahatchee Preserve, Florida
      This Boat-tailed Grackle was courting a female a few feet away in the reeds.  I took the image as the male pointed its beak skyward as part of its courting ritual.  The background is the out of focus yellow and green vegetation that provided the perfect backdrop for the purples and blues of the grackles' plumage.
