Spring Day in Delaware

Spring weather means I’m out and about, making up for winter months spent indoors.

A few days ago I spent the day in Delaware:

 

“Sunny Little Landscape”
“Delaware Marshland”
“Sun Hued”

 

 

“Painted Marsh”
Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge
“Singing In The Reeds”
Red-winged Blackbird

 

“Grackle In The Reeds”
Boat-tailed Grackle
“Sunset Grackle”
Boat-tailed Grackle

 

The Grackles are my favorite.  The photos online don’t really do them justice, so I’m excited to order some larger prints.  It took me a while to figure out what kind of grackle it was since there are three different common types in the US.  Some of their identifying characteristics differ depending on where you find them.  For instance, in some areas of the US the habitat of the Great-tailed Grackle overlaps with the habitat of the Boat-tailed Grackle.  In those areas, the Boat-tailed Grackle has dark eyes, while the Great-tailed Grackles have yellow eyes.  But in Delaware the Boat-tailed Grackle has yellow eyes.  Weird, right?
