No Black-billed Cuckoo sightings today. Again, I suspect this may have something to do with daily early-morning playback sessions by photogs. Folks need to remember that to a pair of birds trying to breed, full-volume and incessant territorial song is the equivalent of some super-human voice blaring: "I'M GONNA STEAL YOUR WIFE AND TAKE OVER YOUR HOUSE, FUCK OFF OUT OF HERE!" inside your skull repeatedly. I'm wondering if the pair has cleared off in search of more peaceful habitat.
On the way out, an Olive-sided Flycatcher was spotted in the area being ripped up by the north entrance. Oh, there was a Red Fox on Pine Hill Side a few days ago.
