That’s hilarious! They’re quite opportunistic little birds, aren’t they? :’)
Heheh on my honeymoon in Cozumel years ago, a grackle flew off with my chateaubriand while we were a few feet away, admiring the gorgeous sunset! I turned around when I heard the waiter trying to shoo a few birds away, and we watched a grackle fly away over our heads with a delicious and rather large piece of my steak! (I wouldn't have guessed it could have carried something so big and heavy in proportion to its body!) XD it was hysterical
You know you’re a bird freak when the thing you miss most about Cancun are the great-tailed grackles. It’s only been 24 hours, but I already miss their pretty tails and weird video-game calls!
