There were three (maybe 4, one male other females) cowbirds at Garin
regional Park at North-East fence side from the barn. (Look for thistle
patch before the Eucalyptus grove on the hill slope north of barn. The
cow herd was in this area and cowbirds were following them). These were
hosted by a group of cows along with group of starlings. Lazuli buntings
were everywhere in the same area.
