I had the great pleasure of stumbling on a small group of people that were watching this Yellow-billed Cuckoo as it rested and foraged along the edge of the North Pool on the Parker River NWR.
A brief video showing just how much work goes into eating a caterpillar which is a large part of the Cuckoos diet.
There's no mistaking how this bird acquired it's name. This is one of the brighter Cuckoos I've seen.
The Caterpillar loses it's bristles before the Cuckoo tosses it down the hatch.
Another bug the Cuckoo quickly found and ate.
and lastly a close up of the bill and that very yellow eye-ring.
