[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot of a Common Grackle while up at Magee Marsh yesterday. I drove back home last night, but plan on heading back up early in the morning.

Common Grackles are just that, very common throughout Ohio. Most people don't even give them a second glance since they are seen everywhere and are not a rare species to view.

I think this particular bird showed a lot of color to it's plumage, therefore I decided to post it for whatever it's worth to other members.

It's a pretty bird with those dark color tones on it, Ron.
I like that yellow circle around its eye. You have captured it so well.
It is a beautifully composed picture.
Thanks and regards.

hello Ron
Excellente photo, une prise de l'oiseau dans une position intéressante pour l'observation des détails et des plumes.
Bonne soirée

Hi Ron
Common in Ohio but unknown in Veracruz, so this bird is interesting to me.
The DOF is excellent for a neat composition. Nice colors and fine details.
