Friday Afternoon Bird Photo
This is a male brown-headed cowbird.
These birds have a rather interesting method of raising young. They lay eggs in the nests of other birds and then leave the eggs to hatch there and be raised by foster parents. A single female brown cowbird may lay as many as fifteen eggs in a season in several other birds' nests.
This one was perched on top of a telephone pole in the False Cape State (Va) Park a few weeks ago.
