    Please tell me the answer to no. 5 ” What bird doesn’t incubate its own eggs and is not a nest parasite? “. Google will only give me the brown-headed cowbird and cuckoo and of course that is not answering the question as these two ARE parasites. I adore birds and while I do know a great deal about them I am not a specialist and love to learn new things. Thank you so much. Carole Busby
