Photo Share: Boat-tailed Grackle female

Photo from Wikimedia Commons
This female Grackle is waiting for a drop of water to appear. We were at a park on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico when I noticed the Grackles taking turns getting the occasional drip from this faucet. Water everywhere but not drinkable for these birds. This shows how important it is to conserve fresh water. - Andrea from DeLand, FL
