I was seriously doubting that I would see or hear a Cuckoo this Spring. But that's the thing about birding, the unexpected can never be ruled out. Anyways I spotted a Black billed Cuckoo from my bathroom window the morning of the 19th - it was perched on a snag - on the fringe of my yard around 7:15am. I was afforded a good 20 seconds of observation. Perhaps the bird was checking out what all the commotion was around the nearby feeders? Also, worth pondering was the timing of the "Rain Crow's" arrival in relationship to the significant storm that barrelled through less than 24 hours prior.
