How Cowbirds feed

Consumption rate: approximately .03lbs of grain per day
Cowbirds are ground feeders in that they typically forage for food in open areas on the ground looking for insects like beetles and grasshoppers as well as seeds from grasses and weeds.

Cowbirds are known to damage ripening sorghum, sunflower, and millet. They will also eat livestock feed and are found gleaning waste grain and seed from dung.
