Another cuckoo reporting in.

A Yellow-billed cuckoo was calling from the edge of the woods behind our
house midmorning today.  I stalked it and flushed it twice, whereupon it
flew north across Rte 23 and down to the woods along Otter Creek.

The real cuckoo here is me.  I have been hearing this call from that same
corner of the woods for not one but two years now.  I didn't bother to seek
it out and just assumed it was some sort of variation of the Black-billed
Cuckoos we occasionally see and hear.
