Camera Critter #114

When I lived just outside a small town east of my current location, I would see Brown-headed Cowbirds two or three times a month. After all, they are a rather common bird in central Oregon.

However, since moving to Redmond, I hadn't seen a Brown-headed Cowbird at all...until last Sunday. Not only did I find a male at my feeder, but I also found a female with him

Great photos of the Cowbirds, they are such pests. Neat survivial traits though. Have a wonderful weekend.

Pesky little guys, but lots of fun to watch.

Great photos of the Cowbirds. We get them here in Virginia. I just posted a great website I found on my Camera Critters post, which is great for a novice like me. I don't know too much about identifying bird songs and they have some really neat videos. I think your blog is great and I am learning a lot here too, thank you.

Great shots as usual, I've come to expect exceptional shots on your posts. Seeing a bird that you haven't seen in a while or at all is a great thing and to capture them in images is even nicer.
