Or at least I thought I did, this little bird (a juvenile Brown-Headed Cowbird, I think) followed me around for at least 30 minutes at the Bird Sanctuary Saturday. He was so close to me as a walked, I was worried I might step on him.
Once I got home and tried to identify this bird I found out that this species:
Forages mostly by walking on the ground. Often associates with cattle or horses in pastures, catching the insects flushed from the grass by the grazing animals. Originally, was closely associated with bison herds on the Great Plains.
So maybe he wasn’t being friendly just hanging around and catching insects I inadvertently flushed from the grass.
