New Bird Photographed – Boat-tailed Grackle

Boat-tailed Grackle

Boat-tailed Grackle

Day two of Connecticut hiking was just as awesome as the first day.

While exploring the Stewart B. Mckinney NWR in Stratford (Great Meadows Marsh), I heard a grackle type bird calling out through the marsh.  It sounded different than what I am accustomed to, and initially dismissed the call as a common grackle.

Thankfully, I took a closer look and saw what appeared to be a boat-tailed grackle!  This was somewhat surprising because I didn’t think they were commonly seen this far up the coast.  I remained patient and I was rewarded with a single shot.
