Grackle Bath Time

There had been a heavy rain the night before and the leftover puddles of water made a great bird bath. This Common Grackle showed off his iridescence before he jumped in.

Grackles tend to hang out in flocks and make a lot of noise. This one was off on his own and quietly went about his bath ritual.
