  1. Cowbirds lay their eggs in other birds nests so they are raised by other parents. Some juvenile birds fledge out of the nest before they can fully fly. The surrogate parents will continue to feed the juvenile if it is on the ground. A lot of times they will be able to fly/hop unto low lying bushes etc until they are able to fully fly.
  2. My first impression was also of bluebird however how far north in Ontario are you? Looks like Sudbury area is the northern most range. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Eastern_Bluebird/maps-range
  3. Females and juveniles are more muted brown all over https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Brown-headed_Cowbird
  4. Is that bump on the beak normal? I know it's usually fully covered by feathers and thick billed but that looks like a lump almost?
  5. My guess would be a Dark Morph Red Tailed Hawk (Harlan's) but wait for the experts.
  6. Welcome to Whatbird! Wait for the experts but I think it may be a Tanager.
  7. In the second photo I believe I see white flared covert feathers. Recently someone else posted a similar photo and I believe it was a Northern Goshawk.
  8. The second set of videos I would say definitely mature Red Shouldered Hawk. The first video is perhaps a juvenile Red shouldered Hawk but wait for the experts to comment. Nice videos :)
  9. My vote is Raven - thick bill and rough feathered neck - but wait for the experts.
  10. There are multiple sightings of a Greater Kiskadee with photograhic proof up in Indiana from January of this year listed on Ebird.
  11. I love when I review my pictures and realize I got a bird I wasn't expecting :)
