Two options: drive to the very end of Neal and park at the boat launch, it park at the Neal Rd. barricade on Hwy. 203 and walk through (room for about 3 cars). Look across river in trees and on farm buildings

The grackle has been found on top of the silo (I saw it there yesterday around 1:15). Check also the rooftops of the buildings there. It sometimes travels with the other blackbirds to and from the trees in the area including the tall cottonwoods along the river. If you’re lucky, it and the blackbird flock will visit the corn stubble field on the opposite side of Neal Rd from where you’re standing. The majority of time, however, the grackle feeds out of sight among the veal pens for spilled grain, so patience is needed.
