Cowbirds are considered a parasitc bird meaning, they do not nest or raise their own young. They lay their eggs in the nest of a “host” bird who then raises them. Last year our resident Vermilion Flycatchers raised a baby cowbird rather than a flycatcher. This baby cowbird, being very, very hungry and “not” hunting for its own bugs kept the flycatchers busy for sure.
