I think thats the first time I've seen a "bronze" form Grackle. Super shot and details Karl, with the fish a nice bonus.
Make your life spectacular!

Thanks Dave. I looked it up again in Kenn Kaufman's Field guide. He actually calls it "Bronzed" form so I'll correct it
accordingly.

a perfect timing on your part on top of a pine tree and a fish in the beak, nice one.

Interesting plumage, I don't remember seeing one like that, the little fish adds to it.

It certainly has very striking rich colour and iridescence Karl - and a very wild looking eye. Excellent shot!

I didn't know of this colour type, Karl, nice to see a photo. The captured prey is a great addition to your image.
