Grackle gang

Grackle Gang


Iridescent grackle gang

Always in croaky conversation.


Strutting about eating bugs in the front field,

Causing an immediate ruckus at the neighbors’ cat,


Nesting together deep in the cedars

Quick to rise up and swarm a passing hawk-


Dive bombing all aerial predators

Mobbing the threat with a clamorous chorus.


Our flocks’ Early Warning System.
