    Thanks anyway : )

    It came into my back yard and flew up from my feeder into a tree with a brown headed cowbird , first I thought it might be a juvenile  cowbird . But after looking that up I soon ruled that out , have been watching and hoping to see it again ,but have not seen it since :(

    It looks like a male brown-headed cowbird to me.

    Junior ,

    Thanks …..

    But the male brown headed cowbirds I have seen does not have the white on their chest and neither does the females . And the juveniles from what I can tell does not either.  I have the cowbirds coming in everyday to my feeder.

    But but I have ruled out it being a towhee .

    It just might remain my mystery bird on 2014 … hahaha !

    It appears to a be a leaf blown in front of the bird, but perhaps I’m wrong. If it isn’t a brown-headed cowbird, I have no guesses left. Good luck!
