Lazy, Sneaky or Smart?

Snapped a photo of this pair of Brown-headed Cowbirds.

The male is handsome but these birds don't waste their time building nest and raising young.  Instead the females put all their energy into laying eggs, sometimes more than three dozen a summer, which they lay in the nests of other birds to be hatched and reared.
