Suave - and Not So
As I walked to me office at CyFair the other day, a male Great-tailed Grackle was strutting across the parking lot. He was looking very handsome and the nearby female Grackles were looking suitably impressed.
A Northern Mockingbird perched by the library building was looking much less suave. I watched as he worked on his feathers.
When I left, several minutes later, he still hadn't managed to get the look he was aiming for. And he didn't seem at all happy about it.
