While at

in Gilbert, Arizona I noticed the Grackles were catching small fish along the shore line.

I'll admit the fish may already have been dead and just floating on the water at the shore line.


Well it's not very difficult to see that this fish was not a live when the Grackle caught it.


Now I saw this Grackle catch this fish about 4 inches from the shore line.



I stuck this image in because the normally all black Grackle has a white feather in its tail.
