The Grackle Coffee House

A latter-day

  and what of the Common Grackle...

(Quiscalus quiscula)
The Common Grackle is so well suited to urban and suburban habitats that it successfully excludes other species from them.

A Grackle Limerick
From his perch up above came a cackle
The author, a pestilent grackle
No doubt celebrating
His job decorating
My car just below with his spackle.
