'Junior Editor Quiz on" Blackbirds PACK N. NEXT SPRING-\ EVERYONE OP / ~f . __ - — <CME AMERICAN BLACKBIRDS REO- WIWGED BUCKBIRD ^f-.l.LOW- IM.ACK- RUSTY BLACKBIRP QUESTION: What is the difference between a grackle and a blackbird? ANSWER: Scientists do not rccogniie a grouping called blackbirds. Most of the black-colored birds we see belong to the family Icteridae, which also includes such vividly colored birds as the bobolink, meadow lark and Baltimore oriole. In the lower right, you see four common birds popularly called blackbirds. Grackles, one of the four birds illustrated, are just one type of blackbird. The purple grackle is black, with an irridescent sheen; his tail is longer than the others and he walks along the ground. Grackles arc handsome, social birds and seem to enjoy each other's com pany. Nature lovers enjoy seeing grackles gather in huge flocks in the fall, preparing to migrate south. They know they will see the chartering, long-tailed flocks again in the spring when the grackles return. (Ricky Windom of Elbow Lake, Minn., wins this week's grand prize of a 15 volume set of Compton's Pictured Encyclo pedia for this question.
