Brown Headed Cowbird

Brown-Headed Cowbird

 

The Brown-Headed Cowbird has a wide range along the North American continent.  It can be found in thickets, pastures, woodland edges and residential areas.

 

The female does not build her own nest. Instead, she waits until another bird temporarily leaves its nest of eggs, then she places her eggs in the nest with the other eggs.

The Brown-headed Cowbird gathers seeds and insects from pasture grounds often feeding among farm animals.

 

During the early days of America and the Old West, this bird followed the bison herds on the Great Plains.
