Subject: [Maine-birds] Re: Cape Elizabeth ~ late report of Black billed Cuckoo
On June 7 an immature Black-billed Cuckoo flew into our garage window and
died. Prior to that I had not seen or heard a Black-billed Cuckoo in our
woods (we live in Winterport) for almost 15 years. That last time I only
heard it and called Judy Markowsky, then the director at Fields Pond
Audubon, who confirmed it.
