Last night, was date night. I was mesmerized as I watched this male brown-headed cowbird "court" the female.
He had an unrelenting "displaying of his feathers" as he tried,
unsuccessfully I might add, to impress her.
His body was a beautiful shade of blue, which contradicts the description in my bird book......
here they are together......
the female, also looked quite different then the picture in my bird book.
I read they should be discouraged at feeders as they are parasitic on other birds.
I must admit, this pair was beautiful!!!!!!!
