Was surprised to find a first year Black-billed Cuckoo
in the yard this AM.
I have spent the last 20 years growing Milk Weed in the yard.
I had no Monarchs this year but do have Milk weed tussock (SP?)moth
caterpillars that the Black-billed Cuckoo was eating up a storm.
Did manage to get a few photos. He did not stay long.
I moved 3 caterpillars to another plant that he could see and the Cuckoo
flew in and ate them.
