Black-billed Cuckoo spends the winter in South America (see the map at 
http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/black-billed_cuckoo/id), and those 
long-distance migrants are amazingly strict in their migratory schedules, 
usually not making it back to New York until May.

I just tried making a few species maps in at http://ebird.org/ebird/map/, and 
it would appear that there are no records for Black-billed Cuckoo in the United 
States in March, ever.

Best,

Kevin

According to the "Average Spring Arrival Dates" for Cay. L. Basin 2000-2009, 
that they gave us in the Spring ornithology course, Black Billed Cuckoos' date 
of arrival should be more around May 9 !

their data is from this list and in later years from eBird.

I think I that I was hearing a black-billed cuckoo yesterday evening, in the 
woods behind my property (Pleasant Valley Rd. in Groton).  Is that possible? 
Would they be back in our area at this time?
