FL - Mangrove Cuckoo - 02/17

Well, after hearing a few tantalizing calls on Sugarloaf Key on February 15th, I just didn't expect this - a Mangrove Cuckoo, oblivious to tens of admirers and passers-by as it fed by the main wildlife drive at 'Ding Darling' NWR on Sanibel Island, FL. I'd almost given up hope that Mangrove Cuckoo could be a serious consideration in winter, but this bird proved otherwise. What a cracker!

What a great find! I have been there several times during the winter and never had any luck with one. I'm jealous!
