Sometimes…

I like the ones that don’t come out as much as the ones that do. The Grackles had me shaking with laughter as I watched their pursuit of peanuts. I’m fond of Grackles (Quiscalus quiscula), their endearing clumsiness, the way they walk, those gorgeous colours, the puff ‘n’ whistle, all of it.

  1. Gorgeous, ennit? In sunlight, they are unbelievably beautiful, they shine in royal electric blue, night black, purple, bronze and emerald.

  2. Oooh. Mine too. I’ve always admired glossy blue-black hair. Of course having royal electric blue, purple or emerald hair would be interesting too, at least as a change of pace.

  3. *nodding firmly*
    Purple is going to happen. Just as soon as enough of my hair goes gray that bleaching it can’t do it any harm.

    What I’d really like is purple at the top, shading darker toward the ends…but that sounds suspiciously like a really expensive, professional job. Alas.
