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/

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.
