The 1990 Bronzed Cowbird was seen at the Carter's yard in Lakewood and documented with the CBRC. The following year in May 1991 a Bronzed Cowbird appeared again in their backyard. I do not remember how long the bird stayed the second time but I saw it on May 12th. I recall the assumption at the time was that it was the same bird that had visited the year before but who knows? There are no accepted records for the second appearance (assuming that it was not written up by anyone). There is only reference to it being reported on the Rare Bird Alert *Tape* in May in the Lark Bunting.
