Sat out on the front deck for a while this afternoon. The sun was out brightly, but the wind was out of the northeast and was brutally cold. But in the sun and out of the wind was pleasant. Had a male Cowbird come up to the feeding area and was getting some seeds and cracked corn off of the ground.
The Cowbird is a weird kind of bird. It looks like a black bird but has a brown head. It hangs out with blackbirds and starlings. They female dosn't build a nest. Instead she lays her eggs in nest's of other birds and lets them raise her young. She may lay as many as 3 doz. eggs this way a season.
