What kind of birds deposit their eggs in other bird's nests besides cow birds??
My friend recently had a bird in a house finch's nest that wasn't a house finch but the parents were raising it. They had made a nest in her wreath on her front door and the nest had fallen so she picked it up and put it back and the parents came back feeding it. That particular bird was bigger than the others in the nest and did not look the same.
If someone could reply I would appreciate it!
