[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's a female Brown Headed Cowbird Juvenile from my archive. This was so young a bird that it actually trusted me. He came and stood next to my foot. Probably the bravest bird I've come across. The female of this bird would have laid her eggs in another birds nest to be looked after by them. When this juvenile is born it throws the other eggs out of the nest to destroy them. This bird is known as a parasite bird.
