Yellow-billed Cuckoo

Coccyzus americanus


A common, but slow-moving and secretive denizen of woodlands, the Yellow-billed Cuckoo eats large quantities of hairy caterpillars. Its loud call is heard far more frequently than the bird is actually seen. (thanks, Cornell Lab of Ornithology)


A life spotting for me! Getting the short video clip was very rewarding.
