Subject: [ia-bird] Brood Parasitism with Photo
Was at home in Ankeny this morning and flushed a House Finch from her nest.
Took a closer look at the nest and noticed Brown-headed Cowbird eggs with
the House Finch eggs. I then had the pleasure of explaining "brood
parasitism" to my parents! Such an interesting life-history strategy!
