The grackles are bombing (pooping on) our patio and furniture. This hasn’t happened in the past. The Mr. and I think it’s because there are more of them for some reason this year. If there aren’t more of them, then the few we have are having some massive digestive issues.
We’ve started scolding the grackles when we’re outside. Mr. GrayDays even chases them off once in a while. That lasts about two minutes and they’re back. Our daughter heard us the other day and said “You’re getting old.” When I asked why, she said “Because you’re starting to talk to the birds.” This isn’t one of the local offenders. I photographed this grackle when we were out on a country drive.
