Michael and I encountered this grackle outside of Fry’s Electronics in Austin, Texas on Thursday. He kept making a car starting noise and a car alarm noise. Grackles are amazing mocking birds, but this is the first time we’ve heard one mimic a car alarm.



  1. actually…That’s a normal sound for a Texas grackle so far as I know. At least one site lists it as a mating call or love song.
