A small flock of birds that I did not immediately recognize visited my feeders earlier this week. They made themselves at home for part of a day, feasting upon black sunflower seeds. It turns out that they were Brown-headed Cowbirds in the process of molting into their winter plumage, and included some juveniles. I have kept an eye out for them, hoping to get another glimpse, but they have not shown up again.
