A small, brood parasitic bird, native to North America, migrating to the South of US and to Mexico in winter. The bird feeds on seeds and insects.
I saw this bird species twice. First time a male in Technoparc Montreal and the second time in Boisé des Douze, Saint Hyacinthe. Visually, an unspectacular bird, often overseen.
Females are completely brown, rounded head, dark eyes and strong, conical bill. Males have black body and brown head.
