Brown Headed Cowbird

I have no idea how it got this name but it is an interesting bird, they are infamous for stealing other birds nests. I spent yesterday stalking birds in the woods and around a group of feeders. I also spent some quality time wandering around Busey Woods looking for wildflowers and fungus, its good to get some off time….

  1. I believe the name came from them liking to hang around cattle, even to the point of them riding on their backs. Wish they didn’t steal nests and kill eggs and nestlings, but I guess it works for them.

  2. So disappointed…was hoping to see a flying cow…which would be along the same lines as when pigs fly!! 😉 A nice shot all the same!
