The picture of this Brown-headed Cowbird in the grass was photographed at Green-wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York. Brown-headed Cowbirds feed mostly on seeds from grasses and weeds, with some crop grains. Insects such as grasshoppers and beetles, often caught as cows and horses stir them into movement, make up about a quarter of a cowbird’s diet.
Red-eyed Vireo Eat a Berry
The picture of this Red-eyed Vireo eating a berry was photographed at the Green-wood Cemetery in Brooklyn New York during fall migration. A Red-eyed Vireo eats both insects and fruit. I photographed this Red-eyed Vireo with the Canon 5D Mark III Canon 300mm f2.8 IS II with the 2X extender in the early sunny morning.
