... for this week I'm going to feature this bird...I know many of you have these around your yards this time of year and they are not exactly welcomed guests!! They arrived here this week for the breeding season.
|molothrus ater (Brown Headed Cowbird-male)|
|females are a lighter dull brown|
|and the females have a slight mottled striping on the chest|
|The males have a rich coffee brown head and a oily black body like a blackbird|
|I enjoy the bubbly call they have--once you've heard it you are not likely to forget it! Similar to a Redwing Blackbird|
