Cuckoo for birds.  Yes many who know me have often used the c… word.  The recent post Backyard Treasure has been trashed…  The bird I discovered was more than likely the Yellow-billed Cuckoo very common in 2/3 of the USA including MA, on page 268 in Sibley’s Guide to Birds.  Like most folks I learn from my mistakes, and so the next time, I will turn the page and check out other like species.  I apologize for my bird blunder, it was my enthusiasm for such a rare find that clouded my judgement.  I still see this as a great find and hope I can spot a live one among trees lining my yard.  They have to be here.  I’d like one to fly to the top of the bulldozer for a photo op…

And so I will turn over a new leaf …er… page and not jump to conclusions.  Well not this week.
