Common Grackle

All birds stretch I guess, but I have only seen it a few times.  They don't raise their wings like a human would raise  their arms, though.  They actually lower their wing, separating all the wing feathers as they do so.  They always stretch the leg on the same side with the wing, so that they are left standing on one leg.  Because of the need to remain balanced, they perform the whole act in slow motion.
