Cowbird No. 1 of 2009
BROWN-HEADED COWBIRD, EVANSTON, ILLINOIS, APRIL 7, 2009
SMC Pentax-F* 300mm ED (IF)
1/1000 sec. f6.7
The parasitical cowbird, which lays its eggs in the nests of other species, is considered unmannerly trash in the avian world. It has the virtue, however, of being generally unafraid of human photographers and perching nearby long enough for sharp close-in shots.
