A male Brown-headed Cowbird made a rare appearance at our backyard bird-feeders on January 29th. I can't remember ever having a cowbird in January before. But King City is just within the northern boundary of the cowbird's traditional winter range, plus we have had a very open winter so far. It is seen above between a Mourning Dove and a European Starling. This is also the first winter, in a very long time, that we have had starlings staying over the winter in our backyard.
