It’s that time again in North Texas. Grackles, or better known here as “rats with wings”!. These birds collect into flocks of thousands of birds and last night, I was in Burleson at sundown and came across the intersection where they seem to gather every year at this time. There must have been millions of them flying around, perched on wires, in trees and on the ground of the shopping center looking for food. They are a real nuisance because, as one can imagine, they tend to leave a lot of droppings, especially on cars. Wether you knew this or not, bird droppings contain acid which could do serious damage to your car, so try to park in an area that these rats do no congregate!
