Brown-headed cowbird male and blue jay in freefall

Brown-headed cowbirds are notorious nest parasites, but they also turn out to be fairly approachable and rather photogenic.

This guy had just launched himself from the tip of a tree and was angling back toward me--it's a dark image, but you can see the angle of the tail as he uses it to turn and the twist of the body as he changes direction. I thought it was a neat shot, even if it is dark...
