Yes (qualified). Years and years ago, birders more experienced than I,
identified a cuckoo as a hybrid. I was young and impressionable. I believed
it then, but am not so sure now.

Just wondering:
Is there any evidence of the black-billed and yellow-billed cuckoo
hybridizing?
Saw two cuckoos today with Tom Barber at one location in his birding block,
one
which sounded like a yellow-billed and had some slight masking behind the
eye
but also had a buffy neck like a black-billed. The sighting was brief and
the
bird's beak was blocked from view by leaves, so we didn't have the
opportunity
to confirm that obvious field mark.
