Yellow-billed Cuckoo

My first year of serious birding yielded this great find. I didn't know they even came through the Valley. I was smitten and he was annoyed but tolerated us pretty well.

Date Spring 2006
Location: Sheephead Dr. South Padre Island, Texas
Behavior: He was so tired he couldn't fly away. He just kept looking down at me as if to say. "you're still here?" We left him perched facing the afternoon sun. What an amazing experience.
