There are three types of cuckoos found in North America. The Black-billed Cuckoo is the most common of the group, having a
range across most of southern Canada, across the American plains, down to Texas into Florida.
The Yellow-billed Cuckoo is seen less in Canada, but its habitat extends into Mexico. The third type and most sought after, is the Mangrove Cuckoo, which lives in the lower regions of Florida only.
The cuckoos' main diet are different forms of caterpillars. These birds never really settle into one region, but are more
likely to be seen and nest wherever there are abundant supplies of caterpillars to live on.
