This is my personal record for the most Brown-headed
Cowbirds on a
Buffalo on Antelope Island (there may even be
a Starling on there).

One of my favorite poses of Brown-headed Cowbirds and
of the species (used in courtship). This pose,
with the beak pointed skyward, is also used as a dominance
over other female cowbirds.

Cowbirds lay their eggs in other birds' nests
and often tiny warblers are forced to raise these larger
birds at the
expense of their own offspring.
I often wonder how cowbirds ever get together as adults
think they'd want to hang
around birds that look like their parents. They must
sharp. © Carol Davis,
