Chateau Papillon Bird #52: Yellow-billed Cuckoo

After a brief yet incredibly intense rainstorm this afternoon, I heard the 52nd confirmed bird species for Chateau Papillon: the Yellow-billed Cuckoo.

I'd opened my office window to shush the Papillons who'd gone out to do business when I heard the unmistakable call from the trees somewhere overhead. The cuckoo wasn't an unexpected bird, but at the same time, not one we got in our rental home's yard in Vienna, either, and thus made for a nice addition to the list.
