Sometimes I just want friends to see a bird I photographed, no rules.

Boat-tailed Grackle stealing turtle eggs.  A woman watching was literally crying as momma sat nearby guarding other eggs and was helpless against the thief.  I talked some people passing by out of scaring the bird away, as this is how nature is supposed to work.

FYI, I'm getting a "Restricted Access" message when I try to look at this photo.

@dragon49posted this photo a few weeks ago but we told him/her that it was actually a crow, not a grackle. They changed it to crow on ebird, making the grackle link stop working.

After a member told me it was a crow, I went ahead and changed the species to Fish Crow in Ebird.  I do understand that without hearing the call, it could in theory, be an American Crow, but given the Fish Crow calls that I hear every day in this county and every time I'm at that hotspot, and the lack of any American Crow calls I've encountered in the year + I've been living here, I felt appropriate to report a Fish Crow.  Here is the updated link:

Sorry for the double-post, but I wanted to quote xpoetmacr, and it's too late for me to edit the last one.

Not because of the bird, but I really like the photo due to the composition. Opinions welcome!

I mean, I'm definitely not the opinion you were looking for, but I think it's a cool photo, it makes you feel as if you are peering through the flowers to look at the hummingbird and it gives you a sense of the surroundings.

That’s what I think! I don’t care whose opinion it is, everyone’s opinion is respected.
