Is that a ham or a grackle

Well, we're winding up our annual visit to family in Virginia. I won't be home three days and then it's off to Arizona for the American Birding Association Convention. Woo Hoo!

The gulls have been most leery of the NovaBird Camera but the boat-tailed grackles sure have warmed up to it. One male in particular put on quite a show:

Scratching his bill with his feet or more bird interpretive dance?
Singing his grackley song (it's more fun if you imagine the following being sung: Barry White's "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love", Barry Manilow's "Tryin' To Get That Feelin' " or Verdi's "Rigoletto")
Showing us his best side...leavin' the ladies to sigh.
