It’s a little early; family units are just now beginning to merge, but these small roosts should grow in size through your July.
I received the email below asking for information on any current large roosting areas for Great-tailed Grackles in the Austin area. I don't currently know of any, but if you do, please reply to me off list and I will forward the info on to Dr. Yorzinski.
Thank you in advance for your help,

I was given your email from the Travis Audubon Society. I was wondering whether you happen to know any locations where great-tailed grackles are currently roosting in large numbers in the Austin area at night?
