Possible sighting of juvenile Bronzed Cowbird at the Bishop Sewer Ponds a little before 10 AM in the southeastern pond along the east side. Last seen in the small willow on that side of pond. Bird was blackish brown, notable brown on the primary feathers. Bill was long and wide with the nostril easily seen at the base of bill; was also decurved. The eye did not appear to be red. There were some gray feathers on the upper legs. Tail was dark and drooped down on the sides. Hope someone else can get a good look at this bird. (HELP!)
