The Breeding Grounds:  The Breeding Grounds Loss or alteration of breeding habitat Cowbirds Slide14:  lay eggs in other birds’ nests host birds incubate cowbirds hatch before hosts and are larger cowbirds outcompete host young for food many host young either do not survive or fledge in poor condition female cowbird can lay 40-80 eggs in a season Cowbirds are obligate brood parasites The Breeding Grounds:  The Breeding Grounds Loss or alteration of breeding habitat Cowbirds Natural nest predators What’s for dinner? Slide16:  many predators, such as raccoons, patrol edges where two habitats come together some predators find and eat bird eggs and young other nest predators include crows, blue jays, rat snakes and other small mammals The Breeding Grounds:  The Breeding Grounds Loss or alteration of breeding habitat Cowbirds Natural nest predators Cats Slide18:  Keep your cat indoors if at all possible!
