I'm pretty sure I've identified the flighty black birds that hate the camera, they're Common Grackles.  Not really beautiful or pretty sounding, but they're fun to watch taking baths in the puddle across the street!  And their feathers are very iridescent in the sunshine (not that we benefit from that today, it's cold and cloudy.)

Here are some slightly better pictures (but not ver much...sorry!)  And please, no commentary on the state of my lawn!
