Last week I was walking the wooded trails behind the Old Bethany Airport.  A  female BH Cowbird flushed from a very close patch of wood ferns.  Although too cautious to tramp in and investigate, I assume it was parasitizing an Ovenbird nest.  

Triple Ugh...

I just had a similar experience with a Cardinal at the bird feeder.  Feeding.....a single Cowbird. Ugh
