Cowbird baby in nest with Brewers Blackbird clutch.

Cowbirds don’t raise their own young.  Instead, they lay an egg in another birds nest for them to care for…

Unfortunately the smaller birds in the nest often don’t get enough food to survive.

Thanks for joining me at my Family Reunion!!!  LOL!  (I know, not a single family member in site!)
