The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.
The Washington Gap Analysis Project could not find any historical research records (i.e., Breeding Bird Atlas, Breeding Bird Survey, Bird Banding and Recovery) for 73 species of birds. The Black-billed Cuckoo is one of the species.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
This Cuckoo is found in woodlands and along streams. It breeds in most of Canada and central to the eastern US. It is a very rare breeder in Texas. Accidental in Washington. Four Audubon sightings June 19-July 1. Three from eastern edge of state, one from Puget Sound.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
