Around the corner the male grackle was doing the mate-attraction dance. Funny!! All puffed and "sexy", strutting. The female could not have cared less, totally brushed him off.
I know, I know..... starlings. Brat birds, ....but they're very pretty brat birds. Clicky clicky in the grass.
And as for the grass, the flicker probes into the soil for grub and things. Flicker, grass beautiful.
The final bird really surprised me, the gorgeous redbelly woodpecker off the tree for a change. It flew up after a challenge from a dratted starling.
