The Great Tail Grackles are beautiful birds even though they are quite noisy at times.
Yesterday my timing just happen to be perfect I was able to capture a few grackles feeding on crawdad’s. I did not know even know they ate them.
I noticed the first thing they do is take the pinchers off the crawdad and sling them in the grass. That is pretty smart if you think about because I am sure those crawdad’s could latch onto a bird pretty quick.
I saw a few different grackles eat about three of them and then they left. There has been a lot of rain so that means plenty of crawdad’s for them to eat.
