Black-billed Cuckoo

Caught my eye flying between trees to south of tower. I was immediately interested since it lacked rufous in the wings and bold white tail spots. I went quickly down the tower to the field and refound the bird getting several short looks. The bird was not very accommodating, perching in dense leaves and startling easily, but I managed to get two good views of the head and could plainly see the all black/dark bill and note that the bill was slighter than YBCU's.
