Bronzed Cowbird

Molothrus aeneus

Like other cowbirds, these birds lay their eggs in the nests of others, leaving its victims to raise their young. Cowbird babies out-compete their victim’s young and rarely to any but the cowbird babies survive. Bronzed Cowbirds are resident in most of Mexico, but can also be found year-round in the Mississippi Delta in Louisiana, the far south of Texas and to a certain extent, southeastern Arizona.
