|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|From my 2011 Archives.|
The Black-billed Cuckoo (Coccyzus erythropthalmus) is a relatively common but secretive bird of forests in Central and Eastern North America. Usually hiding in deciduous woodlands and thickets, they tend to be heard more often than seen.
Food sources are generally larger insects including caterpillars, cicadas and grasshoppers.
The distinctive cu-cu-cu call is always very pleasing to hear. Only bested by a chance to see one sitting motionless in the understory on a nice spring or summer day!
