Brown-headed Cowbird

Brown-headed Cowbird, Molothrus ater
31 July 2011
While sitting on the patio enjoying a pleasant summer afternoon, we observed this juvenile Brown-headed Cowbird splashing vigorously in the bird bath. The pictures show it drying off and begging for food from its surrogate parent, a Chipping Sparrow, Spizella passerina.
