      Thanks so much – I think Grackles can be very elegant in their irridescent feathers, but also very strong and sometimes too intense and scary!Thanks again for stopping by..

      Thanks so much, your photographs are stunning. My grandparents were from Bremen! I have only been to Germany once – along the Rhine stopping in Mainz and Dusseldorf! Greetings from New York City!

  13. Blue gackles are rarely, if ever, glimpsed on the west coast. That–and your like to my “Free Bookstore” blog post made me glad I stopped by to see your painting.
