A female Boat-tailed Grackle with a small frog it just caught.

As I watched, the Grackle repeatedly took the frog to the water's edge and dunked it to wash it. Then it picked at the frog as if to get a piece off to eat.

But as small as the frog was, the Grackle did not seem inclined to want to swallow it whole.
