Birds - Brown-headed Cowbird
Class:Aves Order:Passeriformes Family:Icteridae


Brown-headed Cowbird, Molothrus ater. The cowbird is a Parasitic Brooder. This means that they lay their eggs in the nests of other birds, allowing well over a hundred different species of birds to sit on their eggs for them! They are a black bird with a brown head. They have a varied diet with a focus on seeds ad insects. They can be seen at feeders. I frequently see these Brown-headed Cowbirds at Heritage Park in Olathe.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
