A Cuckoo day

Yes, it was a Cuckoo day. Literally. I heard, and saw both species of Cuckoos today!

First I heard the Black-billed as I was listening to a singing Canada Warbler.

Then, I was sitting on my front porch when I heard that characteristic "knocking" sound coming from the maple tree next to my house! I ran and grabbed my camera and managed to get some shots of this Yellow-billed Cuckoo:

Arrghh.... I'm so jealous! :-) TWO cuckoos in one day! In your own yard! I've GOT to see one now!

Very cool though, and excellent pictures!
