Cowbird At The Feeder
She doesn't look like a villain does she? Yet she will lay her eggs in other birds nests. The baby cowbirds will push smaller hatchlings out of their nests and take all the food the foster parents bring. Somehow the duped parents don't realize their babies look nothing like their normal children and will raise them. Even to exhausted male cardinals feeding large cowbirds long after they have fledged.
