The Grackle


The grackle's voice is less than mellow,
His heart is black, his eye is yellow,
He bullies more attractive birds
With hoodlum deeds and vulgar words,
And should a human interfere,
Attacks that human in the rear.
I cannot help but deem the grackle
An ornithological debacle.



  1. Dear Dad,
    The last bird isn't a grackle, it's a starling :-) We's also had a pair visiting our garden the last couple of days.
