This paper is a summary of the work I did under Heather Herakovich for her research project "Grassland bird response to bison and prairie vegetation restoration." A short data analysis of parasitism of the field sparrow by brown-headed cowbirds (Molothrus ater) showed that parasitism was lower in the presence of bison than without and distance from hard edges of sites was insignificant to the rate of parasitism.
