I highly dislike Cowbirds!!!! They do not build nests - they lay an egg here and an egg there in other bird's nests. The parent birds expend *major* energy and food feeding the baby cowbird which is usually larger than the actual genetic babies. I have lost many Wrens, Bluebirds, and even Cardinals to this *mooch*!!!! The parent bird will feed whatever is in the nest. The cowbird babies are much more aggressive and tend to get the bulk of the food thereby surviving better than the parent's real offspring.
Well, now we know that DG displays your local time for everyone's posts. I posted that at 12:24 am, Chicago time. Not that late for me, hehe. Guess I'm 5 hours behind UK time. Time zones confuse me. You should've heard my Irish friend yell at me when I called her in the middle of the night. Apparently, I figured out the time difference wrong, oops! :O
~Kris... hey, I was right about the cowbirds, though, woo-hoo! LOL! ;P
