Flight

Boat-tailed Grackle - Male

Posted to illustrate its conformation in flight as it swoops over the lake.

The male of the species is totally jet-black, with a beautiful iridescence.

Lake Emerald, in Oakland Park, Florida -US- near Fort Lauderdale.

Shot from my balcony over the lake, Saturday afternoon, April 29, 2006.

 

See him LARGER.
