I saw a BH groseak feeding a chick. After watching for a while I began to wonder if the baby bird I was seeing was a cowbird. One of my books says BHGR are rare cowbird hosts but the baby doesn't look like Sibley's illistration of a imm. BHGR.

I know they are terrible pictures but can someone tell me if this is a baby grosbeak or is the parent feeding a cowbird?
