The animal of the day is the Great Tailed Grackle. (Did you know: These birds are assholes. Though they’re mad intelligent! They’re actually in the same sub group as crows.
I ran into these guys while on my honeymoon in Mexico! They hung out at the resort we stayed at, and would wait until you left your outdooor seating table, and then would fly right up to your table and grab your food! (Assholes). They stole my wife’s french toast…
When I asked our waiter what they were called, he said “Pajaros Banditos”. [bandit parrots].
After considerable research, I was able to find out what they were actually called. [Note: Most of the research was done at the bar with a rum and coke :-)]
