Thanks for these postings: I was on cuckoo alert because of them, and got a 
Yellow-billed calling in the dawn chorus yesterday at 530am (heard from bed: I 
am an adherent of the Rosenberg-Yong School of Recumbent Birding now) and again 
yesterday about 430pm as I stepped out to walk the dog. So far, have not seen 
one this year, but we have had at least one spend some time in our trees in the 
past, so hopeful!
I had a Black-billed call a couple weeks ago also in home dawn chorus, 
apparently separately from this latest push.

Wednesday night, there was a significant movement of cuckoos, marking the first 
of major movement of the season. I hand browsed through those data last night 
and tallied 26 Black-billed Cuckoo calls from at least 24 different 
individuals. I also counted five different individual Yellow-billed Cuckoos.

Other tallies of note include:

1 Red-eyed Vireo (song phrases)
2 Virginia Rail (keeer calls)
2 Alder Flycatchers (re-be-er calls)
1 Indigo Bunting
1 Short-billed Dowitcher flock (at least 2 birds)
1 Eastern Wood-Pewee (pee-urrr call)
Several Swainson's and Gray-cheeked Thrushes
1 Bicknell's Thrush candidate (candidate = a relatively high-frequency 
Gray-cheeked Thrush-type call, but not classic Bicknell's Thrush call).

Many more nights to come!

Good birding and night listening!
