Brown-headed Cowbird

Date of our first picture:  May, 2011

Location of our first photograph:  Platte City, MO

Also known as:  (Spizella passerina)

Interesting fact(s):  The head pattern of the Chipping Sparrow changes in fall and winter.

During the breeding season, the female develops a bare patch on her abdomen that fills with fluid. This allows more efficient transfer of heat to the eggs.
