Greg and All -

 I did because I have had many fledgling/juvenile brown headed cowbirds brought to me in rehab through the years. I am quite familiar with what they look what. I would say 99% of the time it was everything but a cowbird according to the finder! Thank god for camera phones, now I have people take a pic of the bird they have rescued  so I can identify it and determine whether it is a species I handle before it is brought to me!

If any of the 4 of you who immediately got this right would like to post on your thought process, I'm sure others would be interested.
