In previous posts I have told you that this bird was a female Blue Grosbeak then a female Red-Wing Blackbird. Turns out it is a female Cowbird. I had posted this picture on a thread at a forum on Birds&Blooms. Another member graciously pointed out my error yesterday. Many thanks to narnian for her expert ability to I. D. birds.
She is dining with a Mourning Dove.
To see a picture of a female Red-wing Blackbird visit Out on the Prairie . These females have darker streaks. My old Peterson's Field Guide listed the female Cowbird as being grey. I really need a new Field Guide.:)
I apologize for my mistake and any confusion that it may have caused. Should I make any more mistakes in the future....please feel free to correct me. It is important to me to only post true information.
It is a work day so I must get going. Peace to All! sign.....Human Me Who Makes Mistakes
