(46)Common Grackle

It has a long wedge-shaped tail that is fairly noticeable in flight. This is a species that partly makes up those huge flocks that you sometimes see on the campus of Birmingham-Southern College. There are other species that maybe found in that same flock such as, the Red-winged Blackbirds, Robins, or cowbirds. Usually at the EcoScape, you will see these flying over, and they occasionally come down to the parking lots.
