For size comparison, #6 is on the tail of a B-17. :) and it seems to be a favorite spot.

#7 was almost successful at snatching the fried chicken right out of BF's hand. There were about 5 that were hanging out with a few Grackles.

Not sure, but I think #7 are juvenile Florida Scrub Jays. I'd be thrilled to see a shrike too!
