Junco feeding a young cowbird

There is a junco feeding a a young cowbird in my garden.

The cowbird is twice the size of the junco and she works non stop feeding him. Amazing!


I have found this video of a Junco feeding a cowbird.  It’s similar to English cuckoos.  Take a look


Really interesting.  Thanks for getting in touch

Nicola got in touch  because she had seen this story of Blackbirds feeding and caring for robins in their nest



But the difference is that the cowbird has purposely laid its egg in a Junco’s nest.

The blackbirds must have just seen these robins in a nest and started to feed them.
