Bronzed Cowbird, Molothrus aeneus

Bronzed Cowbird
A female Bronzed Cowbird, like its cousin the Brown-headed Cowbird, a nest parasite, laying its eggs in the nests of other bird species, to be incubated and fed to fledging by them under false pretenses. This is the common cowbird of the southwest U.S. and southward through Mexico and Central America, notable for its huge bill and bright red eyes.
