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. Sometimes called the raincrow because its song is often heard just before thunderstorms or summer showers.
