When this rather large bird swooped into my viewfinder my first thought was, it’s a Brown Headed Cow Bird. Obviously I need to brush up on my birding skills. This guy plainly has a black head and a brown body so Brown Headed Cow Bird he isn’t. A check of my wife’s bird books was of no help. So get your bird books out folks and Identify the mystery bird. By the way, that’s a bit of snow on his beak. He had been scarfing up bird seed I had scattered around the base of the River Birch Tree. Have a great evening and thanks for the look.
