Possibly my favorite time of the day when we are in Grand Cayman is the early morning. It isn’t too hot yet and a cool breeze blows from the ocean. Gaston and I like to eat breakfast outside whenever we can and of course I decorate our table with some bougainvillea that blooms nearby.
Having stepped inside for just a minute to get another cup of coffee an opportunistic Grackle takes full advantage of our hospitality. They don’t have a discriminating taste; in fact they’ll eat just about anything. This apparently includes seven-minute eggs. Not wanting to disturb his breakfast, we sit and admire his beautiful iridescent blue plumage.
