A common, but slow-moving and secretive denizen of woodlands, the
Yellow-billed Cuckoo eats large quantities of hairy caterpillars. Its
loud call is heard far more frequently than the bird is actually seen. This photo was taken with the following: f/10, 1/1000th, ISO 400, Canon 1D M3, 300mm f/2.8 + 1.4x, when it was clear and sunny around 10:00 a.m. in Kempner, Texas.
