Gotcha!


I don't see Cowbirds in my yard very often which I am not too upset about as they are notorious brood parasites. This species, the Brown-headed Cowbird is known to parasitise at least 220 different species. That being said they are part of the ecosystem so I was happy to finally be able to get a photograph of this disreputable character.

What a bird! Wouldn't you love to follow them around and see what they do all day long?:)

They are not good yard birds but they are handsome. Great shot!

I'm sure a lot of it would be mischief Chris ;)

I agree Eileen but thankfully they are relatively rare on our land.
