The Grackle seemed to be posing,taking a long stride ,casting his shadow on the walkway at the St. Simons Island Pier. Different birds gather there for treats from tourists. The Grackles mingle with sea gulls and pelicans. The sun was bright and reflected off the sleek black feathers. This bird wandered away from the group and I was able to capture this unusual image as he stretched his legs and walked back to the group who were being fed by a tourist.There were about twenty others on the ground waiting for handouts. A few sea gulls tried to compete with them for the food but eventually gave up and flew away. St. Simons Island,Georgia is a wonderful place to observe birds of all kinds.This is a great gift idea for bird collectors. Greeting cards 5 x 7 are available as well as throw pillows and other decor.© Jan Gelders Photography. All Rights Reserved.
