Thank you, Lisa.
My bird book says the male and the female look the same.
They are named after their lower bill (mandible).
I am so pleased Yellow-billed Cuckoo has stayed for a few days.
They are summer residents in our forests and winter in Argentina.
Perhaps now that this one has found my backyard habitat he will return next summer.
Maybe he will bring his mate.
My book says they are in decline.
I will learn about these remarkable birds so I can provide food and shelter.
I am so pleased he stopped for fueling and resting during his migration.
