Nature Through My Lens

On the Post


In most places across the prairies there are no trees for perching, or they are few and far between.  As a result fences and fence posts, which are plentiful, are a substitute.  Here a Common Grackle takes advantage of such a post.

    • Andy, you have to use your imagination and think of endless barbed wire. It was just a few inches below!
