Thanks for posting, and educating. I didn't know we had cuckoos in the U.S.

Interesting spotted pattern on the tail. And the yellow bill really stands out.

I did not either. Looked them and found that they migrate from Central and South America to a sizeable area of the us.

Thanks. I was out looking for birds in our mimosa tree, and this bird showed up.

That pattern caught my eye since I'd never seen it before. Thanks for your comments.
