Superb starling. Grackles, although "common," are very handsome birds especially when the sun catches those iridescent feathers.

Haven't posted a wildebeest from the Great Encounter for a while. Must have half an SD card of images from that particular time.

Common Grackle
These are common in my area as well, although ours have very long & wide tails (boattail grackle?)

My sister in NE Penn. emailed me this shot of a young black bear in her backyard, eating seeds from a knocked-over bird feeder (cellphone snap):

Now, if only I could get that kind of wildlife in my garden-bears and Woodpeckers-I'm sure I'd be a happy chappie. Instead I have to go to the Kruger Park. Plum Collared Starling

Maybe so, but think of how lucky you are having such an amazing Wildlife Park in your area. Most of us will never see some of the sights you've captured here
