Grackle Percentages

A mobster drives up to your diner. Brandishing size and weaponry, he demands a piece of the action. And what percentage might that be? Well, today, assuming the mobster is a Common Grackle, that would be about 12%, which is the percentage of photos the Grackles showed up in on the day's BirdCam reel. Given that there were only 84 pictures, the Grackles did not seem to do all that much damage. And perhaps we just have a cost of doing business rather than a feeder-decimating activity. Tonight, I breath a little easier, even if I was "hit" by the Big Bird.
