Little Brown Bird

This bird was seen earlier this month in North East Texas. It was associating with a flock of Chipping Sparrows. As can be seen it is slightly larger than the Chipping Sparrow. Any ideas?

I think so too. I see them usually with blackbirds in the pasture. Here is a website from the Sutton Center here in Oklahoma about their research project on the decline of song birds. It is very interesting! They also have some very good pictures of female cowbirds. http://www.suttoncenter.org/bhco.html
