I was standing at the bubbler at 8:30 a.m. talking to two young birders when 
one of them pointed out a Black-billed Cuckoo. We had wonderful looks as it 
sat out in the open. It was a lifer for the other young man but the guy who 
first saw it had seen a couple of thousand of them this year while looking for 
Ivory-billed Woodpeckers in Florida this year. Sorry I cannot recall the names 
of these two birders.  

Joe Eades and Jim Malone had seen the Spotted Towhee earlier today. There 
were also several Wilson's and Canada Warblers at the bubbler. A female 
Common Yellowthroat will liven up the search for rarer warblers with yellow 
fronts.
