Q is for quiscalus quicula....or more commonly known as the common grackle.
These birds don't get a lot of respect due to their reputation as sometimes being a nuisance and just the fact that they are wide spread, however I think their striking iridescent heads and striking eyes are pretty magnificent!
I don't have much to report about the common grackle, no fun anecdotes or any happy surprises stumbling upon them, but I sure was happy to see a bird, which I enjoy, that had a Latin moniker beginning with the letter "Q"!
Today's challenge earrings were inspired by a pair of earrings I saw my friend Christine, of One Kiss Creations, make recently! Last month, I saw her post some earrings made from peyote tubes with some fringe, and I thought to myself, "I need to try that!" Here are the results.
As a reminder, I will be holding a drawing once the A-Z challenge has ended. Anyone who comments during the challenge will be entered in the drawing!
Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope you will join me tomorrow for the letter "R".
