Subject: [Ohio-birds] Geauga, Novelty--warblers feeding cowbirds out of the nest : (
When I was camping in the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho, I saw a yellow rump feeding an almost adult-size immature cowbird that was out of the nest but just hopping along the branches. The cowbird was at least four times larger than the yellow rump.

This morning I saw a male common yellowthroat feeding a large immature cowbird that was fluttering from branch to branch.

How long do the warblers feed the cowbirds?
