RE: Florida trip

Thanks Jim!  After looking up birds last night, I came to the same
conclusion. They are females.  I saw male grackles in the same spot earlier.
We were eating at an outdoor cafi and the grackles were stealing the Splenda
packets off an empty table and ripping them open and eating it!  Quite
comical, but I not sure artificial sweetener is so great for them!  I know I
wouldn't use it!

I think that bird is a boat-tailed grackle--sort of the starling of 
south Florida.
