This little lady has been in Vancouver since March. She then flew to Iona in Richmond where I took this photo on the last day she was seen in Canada. She was last seen by my friend Ken Klimko in Point Roberts, WA. She unfortunately now has a fully broken foot. When she was still in BC we noticed she was injured and limping but still able to walk. Her prognosis know doesn't look too good. I went to look for her in WA but couldn't relocate her. Hoping for the best for this little lady. This is the 5th Great-tailed Grackle in the province of BC and the first record for Vancouver.
