I've said it before, but it bears repeating: there's nothing common about the common grackle - black until the light hits it and then POW. This was my first grackle visitor of the season! S/he wasn't here long. But long enough to be documented.
I was also visited by my favorite - the hermit thrush, and another favorite - the brown thrasher. Don't they know I can only post one Blip per day? Tsk.
