Cuckoo, Black-billed
-Coccyzus erythropthalmus (Wilson)

Long graduated tail, slender outline; brown upper parts, plain-white under parts, and down-curved bill mark it as a cuckoo. Mainly black bill, red eye-ring narrower and much less sharply defined white tips to the tail feathers and in flight a lack of a conspicuous cinnamon-rufuous area in the wing.
