unior Editors Quiz on— BIRDS MAK€ f RIENOS QUESTION: Why it the cowblrd, like the cuckoo, a menace to other birds? ANSWER: The American cowbird and the European cuckoo have picked up a bad habit that has made them famous among people and dangerous to smaller birds. They seem to be awfully lazy. They don't even build nests. Instead, the females sneak around In the bushes and lay their eggs one at a time in the nests of little birds. Not being very smart, the little birds hatch the big eggs along with their own. Because the big nestlings are stronger than Hie little ones, they often are the only ones to survive. Despite its bad habit, the cowbird is a useful bird as well as an interesting one. FOR YOU TO DO: Color this picture. The female cowblrd, shown here adding an egg to a .sparrow's nest is grey. The head of a male is brownish and the back is black. Next time you're out in the fields in the eastern part of the country, see if you can Identify one.
