Chipping Sparrow Spizella passerina feeding
Two Brown-headed Cowbirds Molothrus ater
At least in our neighborhood, this seems to be the year of the cowbird! Having already witnessed two separate incidences of Chipping Sparrows feeding Brown-headed Cowbirds from their parasitized nests, we now have two cowbird chicks, presumably from the same nest, relentlessly pursuing a pair of Chipping Sparrows, demanding to be fed.

|Everything seems like food!|
|Maybe this is edible?|
