Out at the Narrows last Friday I observed a Blue-winged Warbler (or a pair)
feeding a juvenile Brown-headed Cowbird (photo attached). Slightly
depressing thought, but it's probably not that unusual. It just makes me
wonder how long the eastern songbirds like the BWWA can sustain their
populations with the onslaught of cowbird parasitism, combined with habitat
loss, etc.
