Subject: IBET New yard birds in Westchester, Cook Co.
Despite a warbler-rich morning at Bemis Woods today, the bird
highlight of the day was in my yard. A Black-billed Cuckoo landed in a
sycamore in our front yard and subdued a large caterpillar it brought with
it. This was species 160 for my yard and my first cuckoo in Illinois this
year. It follows 159 yesterday, a Mourning Warbler.
Meanwhile the Yellow-throated Warbler continues to sing regularly from
sycamores along Windsor and Martindale Drives. I have heard it every day
except one over the last week.
