These noisy rambunctious birds can be real clowns and make for wonderful photography. I shot these on the edge of a lake. Backgrounds and distractions are always an issue with birds but grackles love the undergrowth. Full disclosure: I removed a few branches and put a few out of focus in Photoshop. I also increased the luminance of the sky to get some blue into the shots. All said and done these birds are good for a smile or two.
