    so many folks don’t like these birds for their nesting habits (or lack thereof) but i think they’re quite beautiful.

  2. Very nice shots! I’ve seen a few this year.

  3. I really love the body language and facial expressions you are able to capture, marvelous photos.

  4. You get such lovely details. Not my favorite bird because of their nest poaching, but they are fascinating looking, especially (as usual) the male.

    Wonderful close-ups of the little guy/gal. I don’t know my birds at all so this was great to see them and their name. :)

  15. The cowbird looks so serious!
