What a remarkable fellow. I am learning so much here. Now if I can recognize my local birds – if they ever come out of hiding,

Yep, science is amazing, ad I’m glad that the mystery has been solved. (And the photo of the cowbird here on your page is just stunning.)

I always like to find out where the banded birds come from. There is a lot of banding that goes on up north. This is where most of our banded birds hail from.

My. How interesting. I find myself wondering what caused her death. I think of birds as being a longer-lived than that.

@ Bellablue – what an honor to have such a great photographer like youself sending people to my site! It is greatly appreciated and I need to start adding a few things for homeschoolers to use! Thanks!
@ Barb – So glad you enjoyed this and one bird at a time is how we all learn them!
@ Liz – Yes it does and Jen has been so excited with this recovery!
@ Lynne – Sure is! Thanks
@ Robin – Glad you enjoyed this and Jen was a great detective!
@ Bobbie – thanks and I love when others help us learn about our birds movements!
@ Lisa – Since Jen (and myself) live just south of Canada . . . it is easy to believe many of our birds are from the North!
@ Cathy – it is hard to say and you should comment on Jens site . . she knows the situation of the bird much better than I would!
@ NatureShutterbug – thanks
@ Jen – so glad and thanks for letting me send people over to your amazing find!
@ Mary – it sure does and cowbirds are . . . well cowbirds! If you love them or hate them!

I have taken a thousand shots of cowbirds and honestly none give justice to both this pose and photograph. Really great shot!

Beautiful picture of this cowbird, Tom.
