Kudos to the sharp-eyed Maria Rodriguez, who chanced into a yellow-billed cuckoo outside of Hotchkiss this Wednesday, May 9. According to her email, "I was in my yard when two robins chased a bird into a small tree just a few feet from me. I stepped forward a bit and looked up into the tree then saw the all white underside of the cuckoo and the distinctive markings on the underside of its tail. It seemed stunned for a few seconds but then noticed me and flew off to the south." Thank you Maria!
Does anyone know where this ranks with the earliest known detection for the western slope?
