The photograph directly above this entry features a Common grackle perching on a branch in the Hallett Nature Sanctuary in Central Park.
The next picture features this bird type atop a grassy area near the lake that is located there.
This bird type has been a frequent visitor to my rooftop garden — especially in the winter — as evidenced in the following pictures.
And this creature along with his/her comrades are known to frequent the Ailanthus Trees that are in the adjacent courtyard of my building.
Common grackles are featured in a section of volume three of my book series Words In Our Beak, and referenced in the other volumes (purchase info is below the ending of this post).

In any event, while I'm on the subject of grackles, I'd like to conclude my musings with an amusing short poem about them that is by Odgen Nash:
