A Few Visitors Dropped In

A Few Visitors–Wild Bird Wednesday–Brown-Headed Cowbird

My Nikon packed its bag and left for the Camera Hospital today. I did snap this flock of Brown-headed Cowbirds before it left. 

Brown-headed Cowbirds are nest parasites–the female damages or removes another bird’s egg from it’s nest and lays one of her own in its place.

  2. i think they’re beautiful, even if rotten parents. 🙂 we had a flock of over a thousand grackles hit here yesterday. roosted in trees all around the pond for a few moments, making one heckuva racket. then ‘whoosh!’ off they flew!

  3. They also just dominate the bird feeders sometimes! I am so thankful they are not here every day. If they were I would not put out any food.
