I have hundreds of those comming to my feeders. They are actually very pretty, in a plain sort of way.

They are also nasty critters. They lay their eggs in other birds nests and the young drive their new step mother nuts with theier endless hunger for more food to the point that correct mother birds young can starve from lack of food.

Thanks all for the nice comments.

Yes, Bill, I agree the cowbirds are what I refer to as the welfare birds of the bird world. They are much like some of the human species here, and elsewhere in our world, that live off society.
