A White Grackle.
On October 10 or 12, 1893, a farmer named Dean Miller shot a White Grackle on his farm one mile west of here. It was with a flock of grackles that were feeding in a corn field. He shot it and then had a Taxidermist mount it.
The bird is pure white without the slightest trace of black, the bill is of a cream color, the feet are white with a grayish tint and the eyes are light yellow with black pupils
The bird's structure shows it to be of the Grackle species and in all it is a very handsome specimen.
