A brief walk after lunch yielded no Bald Eagles, but we did get a Boat-tailed Grackle by the Administration Building, and an American Kestrel on the DeKorte Park Osprey Platform.
The Grackle was making an incredible racket — heard it from 50 yards away.
A full complement of ducks is still hanging out in the impoundments.
I was wondering what is the average life span of a Boat-tailed Grackle. There is a particular male that injured his foot 5 years ago where I work. This Boat-tailed Grackle (Dibs) will fly to me and take food from my hand. If I am on a bench, we will sometimes walk over (with a limp) and take food from my hand. I work in West Palm Beach Florida.
