Abstract

The populations of brood parasitic brown-headed cowbirds (Molothrus ater) have increased to the point where they pose threat to populations of most neotropical migrant songbirds. In small scale, cowbird trapping has been found to significantly reduce parasitism. In this sense, cowbird trapping should be viewed as a stop-gap measure to protect specific endangered populations. Against this background, the development of broader-scale approaches, perhaps in combination with local trapping is proposed.
