On the Road in Texas - Young Grackle Poses

Anytime that I come across a bird that allows be to closely approach, I suspect that it is a young bird not quite old enough to appreciate danger or not sure enough of itself to just fly away.
So when visiting the Water Gardens in downtown Ft. Worth, that was my first thought as we cam across this bird. After a few minutes of observation, it was clear that this was a young grackle.
This young bird allowed me to get within 8 feet before flying to the next branch. This young one was clearly more developed than yesterday's killdeer young who could not yet fly.
Of, and yes, the Water Gardens are worth the visit if you are in Ft. Worth.
