This male Great-tailed Grackle was photographed in the parking lot of Creekview High School in Carrollton.

Grackles have a very abrasive sounding call. It is full of clicks, screeches, and other unpleasant sounding noises.

This bird was in fine form, making the grackle’s signature call over and over again.
