Brown-headed Cowbird

Although seeing the male of a bird species first makes

making an id of a female  of the species much easier as the male  often has the more distinctive, outstanding features as in the brown head of a male Brown-headedCowbird.  However, yesterday this lone bird appeared in bird Alley without seeming to have a male companion.  I am identifying this bird as a female Brown-head Cowbird and  today I am anticipating the arrival of a male Cowbird!
I havewn't checked out the river yet today so that remains as an anticipation yet to enjoy.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
