Cowbirds are the ones who kick other baby birds out of a nest and lay their eggs in there. When the unsuspecting momma returns she sits on the new eggs without knowing. They are nasty. On a par with starlings/

I thought that was what they were. thanks

How do you get rid of them? DH doesn't want them feeding out of our feeders for some reason.

You can't really stop them. Their a native bird unlike the European Starling.

You might try using bird mixes that do not contain corn, millet or milo; see if that helps.
