Rob:

Tina and I were thrilled to see the Yellow-billed and the Mangrove Cuckoos in S. Florida. Now I'n after the Black-billed!

Good luck,
Ann Marie

Early Washington bird book descriptions seemed to lend it an air of mystery- or so it seemed to me. A very interesting, uncommon and shy bird.

But remember when those downtown Seattle Peregrines were caught on cam delivering a Yellow-billed Cuckoo to their skyscraper nest a few decades ago? That was cool, but I'd prefer to see a real live one. Maybe exceptional eyesight is the key to finding the critter.

My sister and brother-in-law have winter digs down in Southwest New Mexico, in a beautiful Arizona Sycamore grove that is actually featured on the Southwest New Mexico Birding Trail map. Listed, on the little blurb for their spot, is the Yellow-billed Cuckoo, as a Summer resident. I've only been there in Winter, but maybe someday.....
