Great Tailed Grackle = Bird # 311 for Vancouver and #418 for BC!

Well this morning I was able to see the Great-tailed Grackle she was walking with a limp and very tame as Grackles are. She can fly and eat fine but has an obvious limp.

This is bird # 418 for me for BC and #311 for Vancouver.

One of the easiest twitches I ever went on it was just sitting there if only they could all be that easy! This bird was first found on March 11, 2018 but was incorrectly identified as a Boat-tailed Grackle and without a photo the report was not confirmed. On April 17, 2018 Aaron Zacharias refound the bird it was photography by Robert Lee and I was able to identify her as a Great-tailed Grackle.
