ANSWER TO SUNDAY QUIZ

Can you ID this bird?

ANSWER: Female Brown-headed Cowbird

The brown-headed cowbird (Molothrus ater) is a small brood parasitic icterid of temperate to subtropical North America.

The brown-headed cowbird is typical for an icterid in general shape but is distinguished by a finch-like head and beak and is smaller than most icterids. The adult male is iridescent black in color with a brown head. The adult female is slightly smaller and is dull grey with a pale throat and very fine streaking on the underparts.
