Title: Cuckoo For Caterpillar
The yellow billed cuckoo likes to forage in dense shrubs and trees for insects like cicadas, and especially caterpillars. They seek out tent caterpillars and have been known to eat 100 at a sitting. They are one of the few birds that eat hairy caterpillars. They also eat lizards, berries and the eggs of other birds.
They have been known to lay their eggs in another cuckoos nest, but usually not other birds, and they don't make a particular habit of it. Pictrures of yellow billed cuckoos.
