Female Boat-tailed Grackle

Boat-tailed Grackle ( Female ) .............[Quiscalus major]

Smaller and less showy than the larger, iridescent black males.

Perched in a Royal Poinciana or "Flamboyant" tree, which is deciduous, and when blooming, is a solid canopy of "flamboyant" red.

Oakland Park, Florida -US- near Fort Lauderdale.

Shot from my balcony above the tree, just before sunset, Monday, October 2, 2006.
