When I was biking, I saw this thrush-like bird on the side of the path. It froze for 30 seconds and then flew less than two feet away. It was extremely plump, and seemed to be a juvenile. What is it?
Juvenile Brown-headed Cowbird? here’s a photo: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Brown-headed_Cowbird/media-browser/67362331
Its beak was black and a lot skinnier. The bird was about 14cm long, and sometimes walked, sometimes hopped.
It looks like a juvenile House Finch or female/juvenile Brown-Headed Cowbird to me.
