What is this bird?

This bird has been around the deck for the last couple of days. Yesterday it kept flying into the bottom of the living room windows... and Willow kept flying at it from the inside. Good thing there was glass in between! You should see all the bird tracks and noseprints on my windows. (Well, maybe I'm glad you can't.)

The closest I can come to indentifying it is a female cowbird, of which there is a nice photo here. Any other ideas? (Dale?)

Looks like a cowbird to me.

They are parasitic nesters.

Guess I should warn my other birdie friends, huh?
