Just took a picture a few minutes ago of the first Yellow-Billed Cuckoo I’ve ever seen. I’ve been editing all morning and took a quick break from my work to step outside on my porch and there this little guy was just perched in the tree next to the house.
I had just enough time to step inside and grab my Canon and snap a couple of pics before he flew away. This bird moves differently through the trees then other birds do. He was not hopping randomly from branch to limb, rather he was deliberate with each step and turned his head very slowly towards whatever caught his attention. Reminded me of a Velociraptor from Jurassic Park, lol!
