A surrogate Mom, (Chipping Sparrow) feeding her young hungry cowbird who is twice her size!
Cowbird is a bird that followed the herds of buffalo which were always on the move, therefore did not have time to establish a nest and rear their young. Food source was gone before young hatched. They turned to laying their eggs in other birds nests, one per nest, but may lay eggs in many different nests if they can find them.
