Are these baby cowbirds or Song Sparrow young?
Nests Near Humans
Baby cowbirds have unfeathered eye orbitals, giving them a bug-eyed look. It looks to me like the one in the front, facing camera, probably is a cowbird. They will retain this bug-eyed look for a long while, so if it continues to look naked around the eyes, that’s what it is because the sparrow’s feathers would fill in.
Thanks all of the Song Sparrow nest I found had some cow bird eggs.
yes, it looks like you baby cowbirds!
sorry I meant to put “have” baby cowbirds!
im on a mobile device and it has some annoying auto-correction!
@Harper price Thanks for the second opinion.
