Western Kingbird and Brown Headed Cowbird






Larry and I went on a little bike ride Sunday morning while it was cool and spotted a pair of Western Kingbirds nesting and some Brown Headed Cowbirds. Also some Kildeer and some sort of hawk.


An interesting thing about the Brownheaded Cowbird....according to my bird field guide, these birds lay their eggs in another birds' nest. Those birds then incubate and rear them as their own.
