Ed McVicker and Bob Lockett reported a YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO at the Greenway on the south end of Grand Island on June 25.
Location: N 45 06 08.6, W 123 01 08.4 The bird was found the next day by Don Berg. Others looked in the following days, but did not find it.
I was away in Lake county June 25-29, so today was my first chance to try to find it.
I arrived at the white gate on Upper Island Rd at 6:30 and was surprised to find it locked - the first time I've seen that, ever. A man opened the gate at 6:50 and I proceeded to the Greenway.
I was in position with my scope, cooler, and chair by 7:08 and stayed until 11:15. I moved over to the parking lot, then down to the river straight below (south) of the parking lot until 12:30. I did not use playback . I did NOT find a Yellow-billed Cuckoo.
