Birding was fun and challenging today - the sun and haze was right in my face as I tried to identify a bird. A seasoned birder was in the area and pointed out that we had a female Shiny Cowbird - you be the judge.
|Bill looks thin and pointed which would indicate a Shiny|
|A pale throat which would point to Brown-headed|
|Here the plumage looks streaked - pointing to a Brown-headed|
|Streaked belly again|
|Here the bill is definitely pointy - like a Shiny|
|Those wings - definitely rounded which points to a Shiny Cowbird.|
