Would like opinions on this. The white patch threw me but based on size and eye color I think it's a common grackle. It was in a mixed flock of brown headed cowbirds, red winged blackbirds and other common grackles. Overhead, large flocks of blackbirds flew by but not all stopped.
Saw this guy peeking out of a nest box we built to attract Eastern Screech Owls. So far squirrel 1, owl 0.
1st turtle we have spotted this year - it was all alone, basking in our 65 degree sunshine yesterday. Not sure we have id'd it correctly.
