Brown-headed Cowbird

I sent several pictures of this bird to the Indiana Audubon organization. I later found out from them it was a leucistic Brown-headed Cowbird. This very sweet bird was the calmest bird I’ve ever been around. He let me get to within about a foot of him and take pictures. I’ve never had a backyard bird this sweet natured. We live in Elkhart, Indiana, and this picture was taken November 10, 2019. What a thrill!
