It’s very well seen…and captured…you were very close/ it’s likely a big crop. Very nice. May get a longer lens, you seem to be good at this.

I was very close, the grackle filled most of the frame - so very little crop - only enough to better center the subject.

Learning how to move around them without scaring them off is a high art as well. Apparently congrats on that to.
