Tristram's Grackle (Onychognathus tristramii) and Nubian Ibex (Capra ibex nubiana) in the Judean Desert. These animals have a symbiotic relationship; the grackles groom the ibex for parasites. Tristram's Grackle is highly social and vocal (note the loud "wolf whistle"). The first scenes show an adult male and female ibex and a foraging yearling. Male Grackle shown in slo-mo is glossy black. The female has a slate-brown head and neck and brownish body. Both sexes have a bright orange patch across the outer primaries. Also a glimpse of a camera-shy Blackstart. Birds of Israel playlist. MP4.
