OMG. I just now have a flock of male and female Brown-headed Cowbirds flitting among my trees. Have been seeing a pair. I doubt there is a solution, but any suggestions for dealing with them will be appreciated. I have a lot of Brown-headed Nuthatches in my dead pine snag, but I cannot reach the nest cavities. Usually also have Wren, Titmouse, Chickadee, Bluebird, Cardinal, and Thrasher nests around my "Atlanta Audubon Sanctuary" yard, but I normally avoid deep searches for the nests to avoid disturbing "my" birds.
