Observation Location: Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary
Common Name: Black-billed Cuckoo

Comments: We heard this cuckoo before someone in our group spotted it. They tend to sit quietly on a branch, so the absence of movement makes them hard to find. Black-billed cuckoos have distinctive red eyes.
