Photographed a Black-billed Cuckoo yesterday AM at Stony Brook Audubon (in Norfolk). It posed for one and only one photo; my first of BBCU. Also seen: Baltimore Orioles Towhee Yellow Warbler Goldfinch Kingfisher Mute Swans with cygnets Cedar Waxwings Wood Ducks And our more common friends.
Heard Yellow-billed yesterday afternoon on Tuttle Lane in Stow by the community gardens. Couldn’t see it though.

Hi, On my way to the Norfolk Airport to look for grassland birds, I heard and then saw two Yellow-billed Cuckoos. They initially were in a tree in front of #7 Miller Rd. near Myrtle St. As I moved further down Miller St., so did the cuckoos. I last heard/saw them near the entrance to the airport. (a bit before Leland St.)
