minnow eating grackle !!!

11 years ago

I have mosquito-eating minnows that like to hover near the pond surface & have noticed the darn grackles flying away with 'something' in their beaks... I think they are grabbing the minnows!! Can they skim the surface like that? Grackles are beautiful & fascinating birds to watch but are not a 'nice' bird... they raid other birds nests, eat the eggs & babies & strut around the lawn with heads held high like they own the place!! Guess I will have to place netting over the pond if I want to have any of the minnows left?!
