A small gregarious bird, blue and black with yellow eyes, found in temperate pastures.
Admired for its raucous calls.

A Grackle is a small gregarious bird with a raucous call. It has a distinct blue and black iridescent plumage with yellow eyes, and is found in temperate Grasslands and Savannas. It is a diurnal bird meaning it comes out mainly during the day. It is important to note that as of the current version all birds are also capable of swimming, in addition to the more obvious flying ability. Its young are called Grackle hatchlings and they are born one at a time. Since the Grackle is considered a vermin it is not butcherable by default. However it can be caged and made into a pet with a value of 30. When slain it leaves behind a small pile of remains.

Has two attack types, bite and scratch, with bite being the main attack and scratch being secondary. Both attacks are considered edged and it can latch onto its opponent with the bite attack.
