Unfortunately we had a Brown-headed Cowbird to lay her egg in our Prothonotary Warbler nest box.The warblers have renested and we will keep checking those eggs to make sure it does not happen again.
I really need to ditch this double chin before my big debut!
Hi Margaret, Brown-headed Cowbirds are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and it is illegal to remove their eggs from the host nest. You can read more @ http://nestwatch.org/learn/general-bird-nest-info/brown-headed-cowbirds/.
Cute photo! Thanks for participating in Home Tweet Home.
What a cute baby cowbird. Please don’t destroy their eggs. It’s illegal and cruel.
