Gary Bletsch, Kyle and I saw the Great-tailed Grackle this morning at the farm in Fall City. We were at the end of Neal Rd. on SR203. It was a slow morning with not a lot of the blackbirds and starlings around. But then, with Bald Eagles, Golden Eagle, Cooper's Hawk in the vicinity that was not too surprising.
Finally about 10:15 Kyle saw the Grackle come in and perch on the top of one of the structures. Twice the size of any of the Blackbirds, long tail - it perched for about a minute and then dropped down into the farm areal. And it wasn't raining!
Much of the Snoqualmie Valley is flooded so you will need to come in from Duvall or around from Redmond to Fall City.
Definitely worth the drive and the time spent looking!
