The Common Grackle (left bird in the photo)is one of the most abundant breeding birds in North America. They favor conifers close to open areas and water as nest locations, although a wide variety of sites-from open nests built in clumps of marsh grass in Red-winged Blackbird colonies to old woodpecker holes and the interior of barns-have been observed.
Their diet consists of a wide variety of animal and vegetable food, including insects and invertebrates but also occasional eggs and nestlings.
Females are smaller than the male and less shiny.
