Window birds from Today 5/5/14

Male and female cowbirds, Gold Finch and House Finch. Cowbirds like to lay eggs in other birds nests and let them raise the chicks for them. Sometimes the larger sized cowbird chicks push all the other chicks out of the nest. Smaller birds can have trouble keeping these larger chicks fed.
