Brave Juvenile Grackle and Collared Dove

There are many young birds around right now. Some seem to be of the age where the parent/parents have stopped feeding them ... and they're so focused on finding food that they're unafraid of other birds, regardless of their size. This seemed to be the case with this little grackle who flew onto the feeder and scared off the giant collared dove who was up there eating seeds.
