Saw a Jacobin's Cuckoo on the H1-4 on a cold windy day right next to the road. I'll try to find my pic of it...

Hi Paul

Great shot. Your bird has a lot of character. Saw my first ones on the Mahonie Loop years ago.

I think that it might be some sort of cuckoo, but could you perhaps crop the photo a bit so we can get a closer look?
