They’re very showy birds. When my sister was visiting here from Wisconsin, she was fascinated by them! Called them ‘peacock birds’. I sent her the link you provided in case she needs a grackle fix. 🙂

They are such amazing, intelligent birds. I love watching them around the farm.

Great photo, Larry. It really shows off his gorgeous plumage. 🙂
